Seems that not everyone is happy with systemd.
ryao, I see you're backing one of the two udev forks from the Gentoo camp. Could you list the differences between those? Why two forks?
To address your question, our primary goal is compatibility. Previous conversations between one of the existing Gentoo udev maintainers and the udev brain-damaged udev developer(s) showed that they are not willing to make as strong an effort toward compatibility as we are. The decisions that they have made would give us more work as we work toward our first release. We hope that the two efforts could merge in the future, but we have higher priority goals for our first release.
I could say more, but I am going to say to wait for our official announcement.
Could you elaborate on what you mean by compatibility?
Compatibility with systemd? With the kernel? With old udev versions?
I know it can be forked (luckily Gentoo devs already did it), but you never know what comes next.
I haven't yet found which of those did the braindead fork's people disagree with, but I suppose it'll get clearer soon.
