Description Michael Redinger 2000-06-16 11:42:33 EDT
I think "super" (see freshmeat) is much more powerful than sudo. Why not 
include this program instead?
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-06-17 11:25:10 EDT
The general consensus here is to keep sudo because it's more of a standard tool,
very widely used, and therefore better audited.
I've put super on the list of potential packages for Powertools though.
