Re: /run/, resolvconf and read-only root
I noticed that in order to implement your read-only root proposal, you
propose to modify the pam package.
I'm not really sure I see the justification for read-only /. I can
see several possible justifications and some of the possible goals
Until you get general consensus on a specific goal, I'm unlikely to
accept such changes if they are submitted to me. As a maintainer I
want to be able to look at some statement and answer the following
1) Why are people mounting root read-only?
2) When root is read-only, what information is variable and what information should be immutable? Why is this a reasonable categorization?
3) What information needs to go in /var vs /run?
This message not withstanding, I will follow any related changes to
policy to the best of my ability.
