Description dmartin 1999-11-10 16:04:36 UTC
The sudo utility is one of the most important
security-related system administration utilities around, and
yet even at this late date RedHat still does not package a
version of sudo with their product.

We are using Linux more and more (and we do pay for our
copies) and it is a pain in the ass to have to install this
by hand from source on every new machine we build.  How
about adding it to the RPMs on the disk?  It's small... I'm
sure there's enough room...

sudo is part of powertools, has been for a long time ...
