Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2005-12-27 10:55:55 CET
Currently, we are shipping files that are specific to TLCOS in most client packages:


These files doesn't make sense on other distros than TLCOS; we do not support
running these scripts on other distros (although Motala does run these on FC2).
In bug 391, we decided that the -x flag should be reserved from TLCOS. In that
case, perhaps the flag should even be hidden? 

There are two other files that doesn't make sense in, say, the RPM package:


As I understand it, though, these are used in the thinstation package. Perhaps
we should remove them from the other packages.
