Hi Jan,

Thank you for your work, I really appreciate your reactivity.
You are right, I didn't create task for ps command as it is not provided 
by coreutils. ( the current toybox build configuration deactivates ps 
generation )
Also, there is no task for the cp command yet since the work to do on 
that last command is double and it needs to be shared with the community 
before doing so :

- Currently on  toybox, the cp command does not provide a --preserve 
option that takes into account the security context and/or extented 
attributes (just like coreutils does).
This has to be added in toybox the same way you have done with the other 
command, and I will create a task for this today.

- But, a specific cp -Z option is provided on coreutils upstream branch 
which is *not* on the tizen branch.
     -> My proposal would be to add this missing option to the toybox cp 
command, so that we could preserve *or* force a security context while 
copying files.

I will then see to what extent our patches could be pushed upstream once 
all done, so you don't have to take care of this.

Best regards,

Xavier Roche
