removal of ntfsprogs and parted
These are not longer needed and shouldn't be in the gate.

FYI ntfsprogs was merged into ntfs-3g a few years ago. The latest version (source and packages for OI) is available on http://jp-andre.pagesperso-orange.fr/openindiana-ntfs-3g.html

Why would you want to remove parted?
Isn't that is what Gparted depend on, I would not like to see it not working.
As I see, only ntfs in ntfs-3g in OI /sfe publisher and if does not have ntfsprogs integrated, that would break current functionality for everyone using ntfs.
Could you update ntfs-3g in OI /sfe first and then make changes to ntfsprogs, to avoid breakage in current ntfs users in OI e.g. avoid having their life with more misery, that goes to parted, too.
I don't think that going to external site is advisable if it can be available inside distro. At leaste I have ntfs and Gparted and they are working.
If changes lead to ntfsprogs and/or ntfs-3g and Gparted/parted not working/not updated, then they should not be done.
