Re: MX-18.3 RC1 Feedback

not a regression, just something I noticed while livebooting MX-18.3 RC1: Although /var/cache/apt-xapian-index.* is mentioned in /usr/local/share/mx-snapshot-exclude.list same is absent from the persist-save-exclude.list The index is 90megabytes (tested, tar.xz compresses it to 50MB) That's quite a ...
