Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

24k in ms-tnef winmail.dat for the above ~100 byte? really?

 -> Owen, if it is not too much to ask, please configure your MUA to use
 plain text when posting to mailing lists, and preferably get rid of the
 disclaimer as well...

To the OP: if you get conflicts for
/sbin/something with /usr/sbin/something
for DIY drbd-utils packages here,
then that is because we used to live in /usr/sbin,
then moved to /sbin/ (or the other way around), and to not break
existing hard-coded scripts, usually ship symlinks.

But that causes problems if your platform already chose to have
/sbin itself be a symlink to /usr/sbin, as newer fedora and RHEL 7 does.

You can chose to build our packages --without sbinsymlinks (or similar,
look into the spec file for the exact spelling).
