I forgot to mention commit histories. The change log on CVS for sys-fs/udev should provide information on things that were broken for long spans of time if the causes of the fixes are scrutinized while commits to eudev fixing things that were broken (and likely still are) would also document things. At least some of the early ones under my name were rejected by systemd. They went into eudev when it was created. > >> -Ben
