I just talked to Brian Behlendorf (since I'm sitting next to him at the OpenZFS Developer Summit). He doesn't have strong feelings either way, but is concerned about breaking people who are already relying on those names.
My thought is we should just fix it in Debian/Ubuntu regardless of whether it is fixed upstream. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to zfs-linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1628279 Title: python utilities script suffix (.py) should be removed as per Policy 10.4 Status in zfs-linux package in Ubuntu: New Bug description: The zfs utilities scripts shipped with debian and ubuntu such as : * arc_summary.py : Provides a summary of the statistics https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/blob/master/cmd/arc_summary * arcstat.py : Print out ZFS ARC Statistics exported via kstat(1) https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/tree/master/cmd/arcstat * dbufstat.py : Print out statistics for all cached dmu buffers https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/blob/master/cmd/dbufstat should be renamed according to Policy 10.4 : [https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files.html#s-scripts] "When scripts are installed into a directory in the system PATH, the script name should not include an extension such as .sh or .pl that denotes the scripting language currently used to implement it." Ideally, this should be fixed and upstreamed to Debian (or to zfslinux upstream) as well.
