*sigh* And yet there is still no way to neatly run a scheduled job on the last day of the month. Honestly, if you're going to write a cron replacement, you may as well make improvements to it.
Currently, if I need to do this, I specify the process to run on the 28th - 31st of every month, and include this shell test before the job command: [ `perl -e 'print ((localtime(time+86400)))'` -eq 1 ] &&
It works, but I'd much rather have a built in solution to the cron replacement.
So those distributions are punished with extra development time (for their own Makefiles) or extra work when maintaining their udev package (longer build time with more build dependencies, the hassle to copy out the udev files) or even the work to fork it, but still people are saying that there is no force towards systemd when you don't want to use it. Man, there were volunteers on the mailing list that wanted to do the work to implement the option to build udev without systemd, but the developers don't want it. But there is no force towards systemd.
Man, your reality must be somewhat distorted.
As far as build dependencies... a minimal systemd build (which one would be doing if they just wanted udev) has 3 makedeps. 1) dbus, 2) glibc 3)libcap. All of which would already be installed on the system more than likely so youre issue of "More build dependencies" is BS rigtht there.
The patches for udev-only? http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linu...ug.devel/17478 the developers had problems with the patches submitted and the discussion eventually died off. Want the patches? There ya go, resubmit them for inclusion to systemd-dev.
Nope. D-bus and libcap have no place on my systems, they are bloat. D-bus is actually absolutely crap in addition, libcap is merely bloat. I suppose people not wanting to use glibc don't exist either.As far as build dependencies... a minimal systemd build (which one would be doing if they just wanted udev) has 3 makedeps. 1) dbus, 2) glibc 3)libcap.

There was tons of Linux users whining about Upstart at first. It broke stuff. Then it matured. Same as systemd. Less whining about launchd, but then OSX users don't whine and bitch like Linux users. Nobody does.
All the major systemd complaints are from non-users of systemd. They whine because they can, not because they have any real reason to. Par for the course in Linux land. Constant gobs of "stop energy" and armchair programmers giving their unsolicited, unwelcome, idiotic opinions on what they think good software looks like.

Hey, look at that. Looks like it's the Mac & Windows users who are the cheapskates. Linux users? They're willing to pay for quality stuff, when the merchandise is offered on terms that are fair and not covered in EULAs and DRM. I guess Mac and Windows guys already pay so much for their operating systems they have no more money left for other things... eh?
