[gnu-sed-devel] sed suggestion: selinux context based on symlink when using -i

First of all, congratulations and thanks for the GNU sed 4.3

Now to the main topic. There was a suggestion (see the
discussion in [1]) to change how the sed handles the selinux
context when working with symlinked files when using the -i
option. It was suggested that the context should be based on
the link instead of the target file itself. Patch that
changes this behavior was also proposed and is attached to
this message. Any thoughts about this suggestion?


P.S. I hope that his is a correct list where to post this.
