There are some hidden directories in /root, that resemble directory names in '/' .
/root/.local is a directory .
/root/.etc and /root/.usr are absolute symlinks to /etc and /usr .
Problem arose , while running recursive "grep -I -r Pattern *" inside the woof directory, that it started to grep inside /etc and /usr of the current running OS .
Q : What the hell uses these hidden links ?
Q : Is it a problem to turn them into relative links like so :
# git rm woof-code/rootfs-skeleton/root/.usr
# git rm woof-code/rootfs-skeleton/root/.etc
ln -s ../usr .usr
ln -s ../etc .etc
# git commit -am "/root/.usr and .etc made relative links.
