Let me summarize what has happened. The rewrite of DEP17 has seen wider circulation and little feedback. It seems to me that we have consensus on favouring a solution that does not rely on changes to dpkg as primary mechanism (for reasons that we disagree about). In order to move forward, we need figure out how to mitigate the loss of aliasing symlinks, which seems to be a topic with strong disagreement. I suspect that merged-/usr is now largely blocked on my availability, which isn't helped by vacation time. There's lots of actionable things on my todo list that are unblocked now. > - DebConf23 presentation arrangements I'll not be there physically. Helmut
