Last change on this file since 8c2155e was 8c2155e, checked in by Pierre Labastie <pieere@…>, 5 years ago

Miscellaneous:

  • few typos
  • indentation in perl-modules
  • I do not understand why we have several places where group nogroup and user nobody are created, since this has been done in LFS. Made those "nodump".
