Package: coreutils Version: 8.26-3 Severity: wishlist Dear Maintainer,
When asked to enable user names containing dots, I encountered https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=604242#20. When do you think chown could stop accepting the dot separator? While it could break old scripts (only : is documented for quite some time now), it would also enhance Debian's POSIX conformance. -- Thanks, Feri.
