Fair enough.
Is there a convenient way to measure how long a bug stays unanswered?
Or could someone suggest a better metric?
Because I have the feeling that many hal bugs are just kept undealt
(upstream as well), way more than with other packages, but it could be
just a feeling of course.
Anyway, I take back that point; I stand with the others:
I do think hal is an obscure, user unfriendly, hardly configurable system.
I see it is where a part of the community is heading, so we'll have to
live with that, until something better pops up; but users shouldn't be
forced to use it, when it isn't necessary.
I don't want my X server to wai 30 seconds to start, because it has to
wait for hal, when the rest of the system is ready in less then 10
I feel xorg.conf it's a neat way to configure it, because I can do it
with a text editor, and I don't have all those XML tags in the way. If
I'll need sophisticated hot-plugging, I'll switch; but as long as I
don't need the feature, I don't want to pay the price, as Arjan van de
Ven put it.
