Re: Processed: reassign 676001 to busybox
[Adding debian-devel@ to the Cc list]
Short story (and it is short): the bug has been filed
against initramfs-tools initially, it is about how
/proc and /sys filesystem should be handled in initramfs
when switching to new root. Original reporter included
a trivial patch for initramfs that does re-mounting of
these filesystems. Max reassigned it to busybox without
giving any reasonings or comments whatsoever. I explained
that it is none of switch_root business, in
and asked to not reassign bugs without giving a word of
explanation. After a few days of inactivity I reassigned
this bug back to initramfs, per my explanation. Now max
reassigned it back.

I asked you nicely a) to stop reassigning without explanation,
and b) to provide some comments about why do you think it is
a busybox isue, at the same time providing my reasoning why
it is not.
After you failed to provide any comments, I reassigned it back
And you, 2nd time in a row, does the same: reassigning it back
to bysubox (where, as I described before, it does not belong to),
and gives neither explanation nor any comments/answers to my
So I've no other "solution" but to tag this as wontfix in busybox,
because I think it is not where it should be fixed, as per my
previous explanation. Mind you, this "solution" does not help
users at all.
