Hi, i started playing with packages in base today, and the first two packages that come up in alphabetical order are acl and attr. I decided to research what those packages actually do, since i doubt i have ever used them. The site both packages link to is http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/. I am wondering if those packages are needed to a user not using the XFS filesystem and the reason acl is Required By : coreutils gettext libarchive vim. Any help on the subject, links etc. would be appreciated.
Next thing i wanted to ask is if the bash-noinfo.patch in the bash package is indeed needed as the man page installs fine without it.
PS. Can we get the Mailing List footer back?
