Subject: hd* and sd* conditionals
Date: Mon, 31 Mar 2008 14:22:24 -0700
Hey all. We've been using conditional includes for hd* and sd* block 
devices, based on whether or not the system in question is based on 
SCSI/SATA disks or IDE disks. However, given the libata framework in the 
kernel, I'm questioning whether or not this is still appropriate.

My proposal: start using /dev/sd* everywhere, for all arches. We would 
still keep the descriptive hb-install-filesystems.xml include, as that 
talks about libata and SATA and IDE, but we could greatly simplify our 
handbook by just moving to sd* everywhere.

Wait until after release to do this, though. Thoughts? :)
