Re: backup software in /bin or /usr/bin ?

The public discussion is completely removed from my initial question about
where to put backup software. Private mail was in support of /bin and /sbin.

I am going to put afio and tob in the root partition. There are three reason
for doing so: (a) both programs are very small (20 kb and 45 kb respectively), 
(b) both are obtional (if you don't want them on /, don't install them), (c)
the fsstnd recommends it.
