I'm planning to make a new release of the filesystem package and I would like
to ship the following improvement.

1) Update the nsswitch.conf to default systemd recommandation for hostname
resolution. This will fix FS#46694 [1].

--- nsswitch.conf       (revision 256723)
+++ nsswitch.conf       (working copy)
@@ -6,7 +6,7 @@

 publickey: files

-hosts: files dns myhostname
+hosts: files resolve m

Note that nss-resolve will chain-load nss-dns if systemd-resolved.service is
not running.

2) Merge /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin. This may require user intervention
if /usr/local/sbin is not empty. So I'll post an announcement about that.
I'm running my system since September with merged sbin with no problem.

Is there any objections?

Bonus question, if you have opinion on FS#45196 [2], please give them inside
the bug report.
