So RAMTMP now defaults to off. I know it can be hard to give ground on something you've invested a lot of work into, so Roger Leigh has my respect for taking this thread into consideration. A lot of people came down on the pro-tmpfs side in this thread. You have some good reasons to want to make it available to users. I just wanted to invite you to make it easier for users to enable tmpfs where appropriate -- d-i's partman component needs to gain support for managing tmpfs partitions (#245465). This would allow users to set up tmpfs at install time, to preseed it, and even to have recipes that include it. Partman is not the easiest thing to work on, but if you know how to use debconf, and shell script, and have some time and VirtualBox, this is well within your grasp. Last time I added a filesystem (btrfs) to partman, I did it by copying the partman-ext3 source and modifying appropriately. It was really just a few hundred lines of code. If interested, contact me or email@example.com -- see shy jo  And then refactoring out a lot of common code of course.
