I'm an arch tester and I'd be happy to test dracut.

It would be helpful if you could create a little write-up on 'how to
switch' from mkinitcpio to dracut.

Its straightforward for me to add a boot stanza to refind to use the
dracut img.

And I assume modules now in HOOKS would move to
or similar.

All being well, the kernel package will need to be modified to update


to now call dracut.

Thanks for working on this.
