Honestly, I agree with you. I am a udev maintainer myself, and the udev maintainers did not bring this issue to council. More than that, no one, that I recall, discussed any ramifications of this vote with any udev maintainers before bringing it to council. The ramifications, as I said in my previous email, are not just udev related (see the section in my previous email about the /usr merge). Once we start implementing the /usr merge, it will not matter whether you use udev or not, you will have to have an initramfs if your /usr is separate. William
