6 Seems counterproductive. Most likely a reasonably long period of time
7 would be set aside before a new udev is stabilized. If an alternative
8 emerges in the meantime, then those who want to use it can do so, and
9 be spared the need to use initramfs for separate /usr, or whatever.
11 Gentoo is about choice, and as long as a dev is willing to maintain a
12 fork there is no reason not to support it.
14 However, the udev team has been on hold for quite a while over this
15 issue already.
17 That said, competition is good for everybody. Best of luck with it!
19 Just my own two cents...
