Re: Really, about udev, not init sytsems


First, I'm registered to the list. So please *do not* Cc: me.

I do just right after, giving you the real argument. This was just an
introduction, and I didn't expect that you would take it that aggressively.

On your side, please refrain from:
1/ quoting only the introduction sentence just right before the real
2/ and then complain I have none, with your quoting style fooling the
readers of the thread.

If you want real arguments, then fight them rather than the decorative
sentences around them.

Besides this, I have *never* wrote that the authors of systemd are
idiots. *NEVER* Please don't put words into my mouth.

Instead, I wrote that upstream authors think others are idiots (it shows
in various threads). That's very different.

The point is, systemd and udev have recently been patched by upstream so
that things are going *even more* on the direction of having stuff
stored in /usr.

That is exactly this kind of things (and others, like merging systemd
and udev), going to the wrong direction, which pushed Gentoo people to fork.

I am *not* giving *my* opinion here, I'm not telling who's right or
wrong, just facts.

See above ...

This is the kind of aggressive attitude which happened with systemd
upstream, claiming that everyone are idiots, while in fact they've been
pointing rightly at problems. You just made a new occurrence of it. :(
