Re: Three kfreebsd wrappers at Alioth Git
Is there any inconvenient for having these merged in
For the record:
#605723 contains the wrappers for "route" and "ifconfig",
#609574 introduces the wrapper for "mount".
The route and mount wrappers are since 2011-02-19 merged in our SVN,
they just wait for uploads of 8.2 series.
Initially I overlooked the ifconfig wrapper as
"#605723 freebsd-net-tools: /sbin/route wrapper does not support IPv6"
does not mention ifconfig.
We currently do not wrap ifconfig, so C code change like
if ((argc == 3) && (0 == strcmp(argv, "add")))
argv = "inet6";
might be easier now.
But in long term (wheezy), IMHO, we should fix ifup/ifdown to use native
BSD interface of low level command and stop using wrappers at all.
