Description

The following packages all deliver file actions to usr/share/lib/terminfo/s/screen-bce:

  pkg://oi-experimental/terminal/screen@4.0.3,5.11-1.1:20111010T041205Z
  pkg://openindiana.org/system/data/terminfo@0.5.11,5.11-0.151.1:20110912T031457Z

My initial thought is just to drop delivery of the file from the screen package, however potentially we may want to look at why system/data/terminfo delivers this.

the terminfo package delivers this because we deliver a full terminfo database.

A good reason to do this is:

  1. User starts screen
  2. TERM=screen
  3. User ssh's to OI system

They should not need screen installed on the OI system for #3 to behave pleasantly

Thanks Rich - in that case dropping them in the screen package was the correct course of action. I did the drop with a transform in the .p5m and referenced this bug ID in the comment above the transform.
