Hi Casey,
vconftool is used with this option to apply smack label in some spec file in tizen 2.2....

For Tizen 3 the correct way to set the Smack label of a file will be in the manifest, using an assign:
    <filesystem path="/a/b/c" label="Appropriate::Label" />

I see several call lrelated to this in many packages in version 2.2.

That is unfortunate.

As I understand, you confirm that we should not  merge this option '-s' , correct?

That is correct. As stated in the review, there are several problems with the implementation of the "-s" option.

If we do not merge it, I can adapt the update for other packages.

Thanks in advance

I saw the request for this come in. I don't understand what the "-s" option would be used for. There are several serious problems with the code. I don't see where there would be a requirement for this ill-advised feature.

Hello all,
we are working to upgrade the tizen branch for wrt packages  to get tizen 2.2/2.2.1 features.
Import changes from /framework/web/ repositories (branch tizen 2.2) to /platform/fralework/web repositories (branch tizen).

I saw the vconftool binary to get an option ( -s option related to smack label ).
Is these feature required for Tizen 3.0?
Thanks in advance for feedback.
