It would probably generate controversy indeed, but my comment was more to understand what is the root of the f34R of udev being absorbed by systemd: "it is supposedly unsupported upstream and might not work at some point". Well, as far as I can see, you are maintaining sys-fs/udev standalone and don't intend to drop it. Even if you did, we could still pkgmove it to systemd. My conclusion is that this claim of udev being a dead end is pure FUD.
This claim was made by upstream, no less. And it refers to *running* udev without systemd as opposed to building (which upstream already made impossible).
Here is the exact wording: "Unless the systemd-haters prepare another kdbus userspace until then this will effectively also mean that we will not support non-systemd systems with udev anymore starting at that point. Gentoo folks, this is your wakeup call." https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2014-May/019657.html Not sure what about this is FUD. Best regards, Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn
