+1 from me (non-binding), for the reasons listed under bullet points 3 and
5.  I appreciate the amount of work to be done.

BTW, I understand trying not to jam the aliases with responses, but I would
suggest that all discussions and voting be done in the open, on the list.

Thank you,

Hello again,

Several people have asked me to consider converting the Zone Manager
from a single script into a Solaris package.  The suggested benefits
include the following:
  * Can break out the help info into a man page
  * Can add support for multiple languages in the man page
  * Can standardize the location of the zonemgr script.  Presumably
    in /opt/SUNWzonemgr/bin or /opt/SFWzonemgr/bin or something like
  * Can break out the license info into its own file as well.
  * Can create dependencies in the package to ensure requisite software
    is installed for the zone manager to work properly.

All of these benefits have value but it is a lot of work just to convert
a script into a package.  The biggest part of course is doing the
language translation of the help/man file.  The biggest need here is to
have folks that can make sure that the translation of the man page is

So I am seeking your input.  If I get a quorum that prefer a package
over a script then I will make it a priority for version 1.9.  Otherwise
I won't bother.

You can respond to me directly without copying the zones-discuss alias
so as not to jam the alias with responses.

Thanks in advance for your input!
