Source: shadow
Version: 1:
Severity: wishlist


While investigating for an other bug (audit support) I saw that ACL and
xattr support was explicitly disabled in the debian/rules, is there any
reasons for this as it seems that libattr and libacl are available on
all the architectures (including the non-linux ones)?

If I understood the code well, this is used when creating a new user and
the /etc/skel is copied in his new $HOME.

So, shouldn't this be enabled?
