Hi all,

Now [testing] is relatively empty, I would like to implement FS#11352 
that involve switching to /dev/tty* instead of the old /dev/vc*.  This 
involves altering the filesystem, syslog-ng, udev and initscripts 
packages (patches against git/svn this comment: 
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/11352#comment44293).  Can someore who is 
familiar with udev rules give the udev patch a look over. It looks fine 
to me but I might be missing something.

There are a few commits in initscripts git. Should we push a new release 
at the same time or just patch the current version.
