Description William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2019-07-20 15:24:45 UTC
Please no talking on this bug since it is a tracker.

Many linux distributions have adopted the /usr merge (merging /bin,
/sbin and /lib* into their counterparts in /usr).

This bug is here to track what needs to be fixed so that the usr merge
can be available in Gentoo.
Comment 1 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-06-24 04:21:10 UTC
For this bug, note that merged /usr/bin and /usr/sbin is also considered in scope, and we should take it into account for merged-usr planning.

(It's not a given that we'll do merged-bin-and-sbin too, but FWIW, I do think we should.)
