    udev is not distro-specific.

    He doesn't have a point. We're talking about changes which Linus called 'some "crazy mode" where they have made changes that were known to be problematic, and are pure and utter stupidity'. Udev was a distro-agnostic technology, which was then tied with systemd without ability to choose. Trivial and unnecessary patches were made just to make it harder for non-systemd distros to BUILD the thing.

    This has nothing to do with distro-specific things in the kernel. funky is just trolling as usual. He just changes the topic when he's caught jumping into his own mouth.

    CA is evil unless somebody other than Qt does it. That's his official stance.

    You can still run udev without systemd, granted you have to pull in all of systemd to get the udev source but you can choose to build JUST udev and no systemd components if you want to.

    No not really. You are the only one bringing this dead horse to the market. Udev is maintained within systemd for a reason you know. Less maintenance.

    If you disagree woth the current and former maintainers desicion then go back in time and take over their jobs. Im pretty sure you have the time and talent to do it, NOT.

    Yes. The ugly patches, the bug reports, the compability issues, the bikeshedding, the forksters and flamers all belong to the distros desiring crazy shit. Not the generic upstream.

    It is that simple really.

    It would be quite easy for you to show everybody a quote or link where I state such opions. If you cant do that you might look like a idiot desperately trying to defend Qt despite the fact it is apiece of stinking commercial shit sold as closed source by a company who clearly moves to diverse Qt even further from linux.

    You flat-out say the CA is acceptable if you like the project.

    No! And for further clarification; Fuck NO! That link simply states CA is a very sensitive area and the gain is really not worth it. And mind you this is CA to GNU who promised to abstain from commercial abuse. Still this approach is highly controversial and considered RUDE.

    being a commercial shit house like Digia who give a fuck about linux and freedom is making CA a billion times worse! CA is shit and a walled garden. EOD.

    Qt being a "piece of stinking commercial shit" is the only reason I am able to code something in it on Linux,
    and with almost no further work compile it nicely for windows/mac, unlike the linux-centered gtk.
