I see dracut is creeping into the system. Which I see as fine, SuSE has used dracut for a couple of years and it has proven to be quite robust. But I do have a question on roll-out and what will be required on the user's part. I have begun seeing, e.g.:
Dracut is not "creeping" into anything. At the time mkinitcpio replacement was considered, mkinitcpio didn't had a maintainer anymore and I've packaged it and brought it up on the mail list so people would use it.
However, I have been maintaining mkinitcpio for the past couple of years. For now, mkinitcpio will probably remain the default, and dracut is an option. I have yet need to find it a decent support for the hooks to install the kernel as well as time to mimic mkinitcpio's profile functionality with dracut. This is one of the reasons I didn't include any hooks with it yet.
New optional dependencies for brltty dracut: for dracut based initramfs support
I think this dependency is wrong, should probably be the other way around.
I currently have 3 Arch servers, with one remote administered, so if this will require some type of manual on-site intervention, it would be good to know before hand.
We try to have a news item for any manual intervention needed, so you don't need to worry.
