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?
