I have just tried coreutils 8.7. I am sorry, still the same problem.
We still have castfs as only optional spell. If users don't use castfs
coreutils 8.x breaks installwatch logging. See bug #15559 (installwatch
no longer tracks hardlinks!
With coreutils 7.6 if I re-cast e2fsprogs I see
$ gaze install e2fsprogs|grep mkfs
With coreutils 8.7 if I re-cast e2fsprogs the "gaze install
e2fsprogs|grep mkfs" shows nothing. :-(
We need to update installwatch and adjust sorcery to this new version
(http://bugs.sourcemage.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13873#c22) or make castfs
PS: I just tested with castfs, e2fsprogs contains STAGED_INSTALL=off in
DETAILS so "gaze install e2fsprogs|grep mkfs" still shows nothing. :-(
