Re: [bam@snoopy.apana.org.au: Re: Settle for /usr symlink (!)]

In article <[🔎] u1hr9qzvjmm.fsf@pusey.mit.edu> you write:

>(1.b) is not true; I was very careful to make sure that the FSSTND

I stand corrected. Reading the archives on the GNU-Hurd web site
led me to believe that it wasn't FSSTND compliant.

This means that any Debian package which can't cope with having
/usr a symlink to / breaks policy and needs to be corrected, so
I guess I have already answered one of my previous questions
to Marcus.

However, I bet FSSTND never intended /usr to point to / ;-)
