Smack: recursive tramsmute
Casey Schaufler [Wed, 14 Mar 2012 02:14:19 +0000 (19:14 -0700)]
The transmuting directory feature of Smack requires that
the transmuting attribute be explicitly set in all cases.
It seems the users of this facility would expect that the
transmuting attribute be inherited by subdirectories that
are created in a transmuting directory. This does not seem
to add any additional complexity to the understanding of
how the system works.
