Suse and Red Hat seem to have developed different solutions in parallel in the meantime, probably out of the same concern.
      What I really hope is that they'll hae a collaborative attitude and maybe even merge the projects, if possible at all.

          I'm not sure at what granularity the other solutions work but my hope is that we'll get some competition so we can have as robust a facility for hotpatching as possible.

            That sounds great except I don't think we need any more camels.
