Subject: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] Renaming the caps USE flag to libcap
Date: Thu, 06 Mar 2008 20:56:50
1 I'd like to propose the rename of caps USE flag to libcap. The reason
2 for this is that I'd like to free the "caps" USE flag from the (runtime)
3 dependency of libcap, so that, one we have the framework to do so, we
4 could use the "caps' USE flag to set file capabilities directly (rather
5 than setuid for instance).
7 The step right afterward would be, for me, to find a way to mirror the
8 capabilities from within Portage. I admit I have no clue how to achieve
9 that for now. But at least the rename is a simple task, and I suppose
10 the capabilities handling _could_ be a SoC project...
