1) the right bash version of [ "$foo" == "" ] is [ -z "$foo" ], or that is my opinion at least. The rest of baselayout uses this. 2) So now we have '/newroot', '/mnt/cdrom' and possibly '/mnt/livecd' for older livecd scripts, or '/var/lib/livecd' for future. Basically, can we really get this sorted out _now_ ? I am _not_ going to add 20 tests. 3) I still think shutting lvm down is the safer way for uses that uses lvm at install. Anybody else want to comment on this? (Note I am not saying to start it ...). 4) I say this for the last time - If you commit to baselayout, you go through _me_. If anybody took long to respond to patches or testing there of, it was not me. You do not know if your changes could have any more implications than you might see/think of. I do not see you doing this with portage. I do not see me removing all the broken 'ppc64' keywords (and breaking in on what you consider your domain)? Questions?
