RFE: allow \S escape that defaults to PRETTY_NAME in /etc/issue handling
Last modified: 2015-08-31 23:39:41 EDT
Description of problem:
As discussed via e-mail. Filing here for tracking.
So, crazy idea:
Adds a \S escape to agetty, to pretty name from /etc/os-release.
We're working on some code for flexible product branding for RHEL, and while
we can rewrite /etc/os-release on branding changes easily, having to rewrite
/etc/issue and friends is a bit ugly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Implemented by upstream commit b34f097e756ab2c762b1ce0f8c9813dbc7e3e308.
Chris, is this fix in RHEL7 Snapshot-1?
