Default >= udev-182 tracker

All,

here is what I see on the current udev situation:

The council has made a decision that we will continue supporting
split out /usr.

This, however, was never in question. No one is planning to drop support
for separate /usr. Also, no one is planning on trying to force
stabilize udev-182 within 30 days.

To allay any fears of that happening, I have opened a tracker [1] for
issues which need to be resolved before newer udevs can go stable.

Does this answer any fears about trying to force an untimely
stabilization?

William

Maybe we should create a new mailing list, say,
gentoo-usr-discussion@lists.gentoo.org.

Probably wouldn't hurt for the initramfs maintainers to open a
stablization tracking bug for whatever version they think will best
address the /usr mounting issue and make them blockers.

No. I'm on enough mailing lists as is. :-)

It certainly helps me sleep at night, yes. Any... inconveniences forced
on me have to be fixed over 40 times.
