Subject: [gentoo-dev] coreutils: deprecated behavior not so deprecated
Date: Tue, 24 Jan 2006 04:05:04
1 as a heads up, the next version of coreutils i add to portage (5.93) drops
2 support for all those options upstream had labeled before as simply
3 "deprecated" ... this isnt a patch i'm adding or not adding, upstream finally
4 cut out all the code with these latest releases
6 for those who dont know what i'm talking about, consider:
7 tail -1
8 head -1
9 <some other stuff i cant remember>
10 these things wont work anymore ... you had your warn time, now get over it
12 note: for those who think they can argue for support of these features to be
13 kept in Gentoo, you're barking up the wrong tree so dont waste your time
