As the one on the tar/cp side of this discussion, I'd like to support
He did indeed say he was the g4l maintainer. And he was perfectly
clear when he post his dd pipeline that it came from the g4l package.
It isn't unreasonable at all that it uses a tool that is part of that
There's any number of "progress reporting cat" type commands out
there; I've got one of my own called prcat  (just a perl script
accepting a commandline buffer size, no fancy threading or parallelism).
IMO there's little value in this bickering over an _example_ command
line whose function is clear on inspection just because it has an odd
but obviously equivalent to "cat" command in the middle. Particularly
since nothing in this discussion is Fedora specific; it all applies to
pretty much any Linux system and nearly applies to any UNIX system in
general (such as the Mac I'm typing this on). Can we please go back to
_technical_ discussion instead of this?
