Which is fine for an essentially single-user system such as a home desktop machine, but if you have a group of people who will be building software for the system, it might make sense to have the sources in a central location and have those people be members of a group that has access there. This leads into a political/philosophical discussion which probably doesn't belong on this list. Cheers, Tom -- Once I finally figured out all of life's answers, they changed the questions.
