Description Tim Waugh 2007-03-01 11:47:08 EST
Description of problem:
In FC6, 'touch a; getfacl a' gave an exit-code of 0.  In devel
(acl-2.2.39-3.fc7) it gives an exit-code of 1.  The coreutils test suite checks
the exit code and determines than an error has occurred, and fails the ACL tests.

Can we get some documentation on what the expected meaning of the exit code for
getfacl and setfacl is, as well as a bit of consistency?  For instance, if it's
an error exit code (as seems to be the case from the source code) -- what was
the error in 'touch a; getfacl a'?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
acl-2.2.39-3.fc7

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.touch a
2.getfacl a
3.echo $?
  
Actual results:
1

Expected results:
0

Additional info:
No documentation about the exit code in the man page.
