: I applauded the FreeBSD changes in an email a moment ago, but
: yeah, I agree with you on the renaming. It's a pain to
: type five characters before auto-completion kicks in.
I thought the renaming was actually aesthetically useful ... keeps the
Makefile at the front of the file list and puts all the package-bundle files
together as a group.
In any case, there's no need to type 5 characters to get command line
completion on those on a reasonable shell (mine is NetBSD's own
/bin/ksh).... p<completekey>d<completekey> gets you pkg-descr. :>
And we now return you to your regularly scheduled "real work"....
