This is a proposal that I just submitted to gentoo's bugzilla:
Currently, hotplug is not easily extensible. For example, I am
working on an ebuild for an ADSL modem that needs to extend
/etc/hotplug/usb.usermap. My proposal is as follows:
1. create /etc/hotplug.d where individual applications can add files,
e.g. application foo might add /etc/hotplug.d/foo.usb.usermap
2. add the utility hotplug-update which concatenates e.g. all files
/etc/hotplug.d/*.usb.usermap to create /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap
In this fashion, emerging drivers for hotpluggable devices would
become a lot simpler. removing them too, of course.
I am quite willing to implement this proposal, if it is agreeable.
Any opinions (or advice)?
