[Bug 1579082] Re: minor changes to satisfy MIR request


I'd really love to see the R_ROOT thing removed as well. It serves no
useful purpose, complicates people actually using the sudoers file, and
pollutes the global namespace. Plus, I'm not sure what happens if
someone defines R_ROOT twice (which isn't inconceivable).

Basically, I'm saying I want this change:
-#Runas_Alias R_ROOT = root
 ## allow any user to use basic read-only ZFS commands

  minor changes to satisfy MIR request

Status in zfs-linux package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:

  This SRU contains a few minor fixes to satisfy the outstanding issues
  to complete the MIR filed for ZFS linux bug 1532198


  The outstanding fixes that need to be applied to the package were:

  "- zfs-zed Replaces zfsutils-linux without a version constraint. Is
  that correct? I assumed a file moved from one package to another, in
  which case there should be a version."

  DONE: zfs-zed, add Replaces: zfsutils-linux (<< 0.6.3)

  "- I like the dep8 tests

  So I'd say add a bug subscriber..."

  DONE: canonical-kernel-team and colin-king

  "... fix the Replaces line, ..."

  DONE: zfs-zed, add Replaces: zfsutils-linux (<< 0.6.3)

  "... address the init script lintian errors ...",

  DONE:  the initscripts will never be used, so we proposed to just add
  lintian ignores for these currently. When Debian accepts their zfs
  package we will rebase from this and will get init scripts from there.

  "... and fix the sudoers file ...",

  DONE: remove root ALL=(ALL) ALL from debian/tree/zfsutils-

  No actual change to the zfs code per se, more final changes to the packaging, regression potential minimal to zero.
