Handing over the dracut reigns

As people may have noticed, I’ve mostly passed the dracut torch on to davej and he’s done a more current status report which has been picked up by lwn for this week’s kernel section.

Now, if we could get to people actually commenting on the core ideas of being entirely event driven and helping to fix various poor kernel/userspace interactions there (device-mapper’s integration with udev is poor and mdadm’s incremental mode didn’t work for me when I tried poking at it last) maybe there’d be some progress. Unfortunately, klibc and busybox and $existing_tools end up being the core of any discussion anywhere.

And it’s that propensity which sometimes make me unclear on the future of Linux. :-/
