Subject: proposal for emerge-extensibility of hotplug
Date: Fri, 25 Apr 2003 00:33:32 +0200
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)?

Cheers,
