/etc/vservers/foo/apps/pkgmgmt/ contans only the empty file 'internal',
and what i understand packetmanagment is complitle run inside the
VServer. Waste some space, but its not a critikal problem, and defeitly
not on top of the list right now :-)

Thanks for all answers. I'm wondering about one more thing

I don't realy need those featurs right now. But I wonder what "context
tagging for files" implie for file copying. Will that taging survive
copying? by cp? by rsync? Will they survive copying betwin host systems
(migrating, backup)? Do they survive taring and untaring? I do the
copying on the host system, outside the VServers own context.

Are ther any tool for changing the taging?

Guess I realy wonder wher i can read more (allot more) about this.

Thanks /LaH
