Revisiting "Bug 46062 - Remove skel from BSD.root.dist"

Enji Cooper
Hi again,
        I did some digging around and found a past discussion started by remko on the topic of removing /usr/share/skel 8 years ago: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-arch/2007-November/007162.html . The discussion didn’t yield anything (unfortunately) as far as whether or not the directory should be removed (it’s empty right now). /etc/skel is used by Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and Solaris for skeleton files; FreeBSD uses /usr/share/skel instead. Should the path be linked to /usr/share/skel or deleted (potential patch here: https://people.freebsd.org/~ngie/remove-etc-skel.patch )?
Thanks!

Removing /etc/skel you mean?  It's empty, but /usr/share/skel is not empty.
Does anything outside of the base system use /etc/skel or /usr/share/skel?
