Re: Re: support for merged /usr in Debian

Remember that / and /usr don't have to reside on the same partition with
the usrmerge proposal: they only have to be both available
post-initramfs.  The initramfs already takes care to mount /usr (for the
systemd case as initscripts needs updates for sysvinit as was said
elsewhere).  So no repartitioning should be required on upgrades.
As explained elsewhere in this thread, using initramfs is still not mandatory in debian and I personally have more managed debian system installed without it than with it.
And the fact that /usr break may require user interaction is not really handled by
initramfs and may cause dangling sysmlink in /
