From the Phoronix article:
Quote:
but systemd developer David Herrmann and Kay Sievers seem to be the lead (and only) developers working on it
You mean Sievers the Incorrigible? That guy whose code is embargoed from being merged into the kernel?

Oh, they're putting their best talent on it, aren't they?

This time it's out of tree: "Bus1 Out-of-Tree Kernel Module". I suspect, with libbus1, they might propose to replace dbus. Let's see how this saga turns out.

Wow. As the page turns. These guys have me on a popcorn only diet, I don't think I can keep up much longer.


I am so glad we have gentoo which is free / highly optional of these antics. It's like watching your neighbors fight all the time from a safe comfortable distance. :)
