This has been decommissioned and now the WAG bag is the deal. (waste alleviation and gelling bag)
Copied From the WAG Bag Site:
The WAG bag® functions with a double bag system. All the components of the WAG bag® are constructed of high quality puncture resistant materials. The outer bag has a secure zip top that creates an airtight seal when in the closed position. The inner WAG bag® contains a gelling powder that is usually referred to as Pooh Powder. This powder immediately begins to gel the waste while neutralizing the odor. The components of Pooh Powder are not toxic and are highly biodegradable. One of the advantages of using a WAG bag® containing this powder is that the decay process is accelerated, with both the bag and the waste being completely decayed in a matter of months. Perfectly hygienic, the neither the powder or the WAG bag® contains any type of perfumes, so persons with allergies can use the bags with confidence.

The WAG bag® is an excellent item to include with any type of hiking or camping gear. The bags weigh almost nothing, and will slip into a backpack with ease. Using a WAG bag® requires no special equipment at all. For people that prefer to take along a camping vehicle, the WAG bag® can be used in conjunction with the any of the folding toilets on the market today, or even with a camper toilet that does not have a water source for flushing. Along with being a great addition to backpacking and camping gear, the WAG bag® can be helpful around the home. Should a plumbing emergency dictate that the water is shut off for a time, the WAG bag® can easily be used with a home toilet as well.

And how many people actually comply with this rule?

The problem continues. There is a big thread on the Whitney board that was going strong about the same time as the Poop scandal on this board.

See my post just above. The thread got put back. There is an extension of the topic on another thread linked in the last post of the thread I referenced. They got rabid.
The Whitney climbers should look at what the El Cap and Half Dome climbers have to do. Poop tubes and ZERO privacy.

I don't know.

My hiking companion and I did. When we were walking through Trail Camp (?) a ranger was checking with everyone to make sure that they had them. He was relieved (no pun intended smiling smiley) when he found that we knew about the bags and had them.
