Apparently, many tools (among them udev) will soon require a /run/ directory that is mounted early (as tmpfs). It is probably a good idea to add this to the filesystem and initscripts packages.
I have prepared patches (https://github.com/teg/initscripts-arch/commits/bootlogd) that mounts /run if it is not already mounted in initscripts.
I'll push them out if /run is added to filesystem (my requires /run to exist, but an existing /run without write permissions will not cause any problems, so it would be best to add this to filesystem first and then for initscripts to follow).
Do the filesystem maintainer(s?) agree to add this?
I'll add the /run dir to the next filesystem package. I guess once this is done we could start updating our packages to use /run instead of /var/run, right?
