Marco, do you have any plans for using this scheme as an option or as
This is implemented in the biosdevname package, which I think we should
get into Debian. I got it into Ubuntu a while back, but have been
neglecting to sync up Debian. Alex, what's the progress of your ITP
(#617820)? Would you like to work together based on my Ubuntu package
(https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/biosdevname), which in turn was
somewhat based on the packaging provided by upstream?
I liked the idea of biosdevname and use it for my hardware .
The are no big progress because I've seen the discussion about possible

.I'll look on your package as soon as I'll find some time .
