Description Aoife Moloney 2024-02-29 11:07:20 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: Unify /usr/bin and /usr/sbin
For more details, see:

The /usr/sbin directory becomes a symlink to bin, which means paths like /usr/bin/foo and /usr/sbin/foo point to the same place. /bin and /sbin are already symlinks to usr/bin and usr/sbin, so effectively /bin/foo and /sbin/foo also point to the same place. /usr/sbin will be removed from the default $PATH. The same change is also done to make /usr/local/sbin point to bin, effectively making /usr/local/bin/foo and /usr/local/sbin/foo point to the same place. The definition of %_sbindir will be changed to %_bindir, so packages will start using the new directory after a rebuild without any further action. Maintainers may stop using %_sbindir, but don't need to.
