"CHANGES TO THE FILE UTILITIES" section in "man acl" contains
wrong/misleading information.

1) Files don't have default ACL.
2) -p flag of cp is written to preserve ACL. But whose ACL does it preserve?
Is it destination directory's ACL or original file's ACL?
3) mv is said to preserve ACL. Does it mean the moved file's ACL or
destination directory's ACL?

By the way, could it be a kernel or libacl bug that cp and mv don't
respect destination directory's ACL?

And I couldn't send emails to the acl-devel list at
What happened to it?
Shouldn't somebody shut down the website on ?
