Is there a way to control this? I'm a bit confused here.
If root runs "pkg-get -U", two files are created:
"/catalog" and "/var/pkg-get/catalog-www.mirror.ac.uk" (same file,
If a user runs "pkg-get -a" or "pkg-get -D" the files in under
/var/pkg-get.are accessed, but if root has a umask of 077 (not
uncommon), these files are unreadable.
These may be trivial points. I just don't like config files lying around
in "/", or root's config files in other users' home directories su-ing,
and just wondered how folks set their boxes up.
(Oh - and why is there two different entries for the "U" switch in the
man page? ;O)
