Thanks for that.  Having read it quickly, it would appear that only section 1 of that would be useful to us, and is probably suitable for being merged in some way into our current history/explanation of udev's workings.  It doesn't actually go into udev's _configuration_ too much from what I gathered - it really just explains how it _works_.  That said though, it's arguable that until one understands how something works, you'll unlikely be able to configure it fully anyway.  After all, configuration of udev only comes down to 3 files (/etc/udev.conf /etc/udev/*.{rules,permissions}.  Understanding how udev works will no doubt lead to a better understanding of why those files are required, and how to populate them to meet one's needs.  The separation of udev's component parts in that gentoo doc was particularly useful IMO.

Yep, still waiting on upstream - plus the fact that Oasis have taken their powers of producing anything other than "Drafts" away from them :(

+1 for this bugfix - Gerard have you done this, are you planning to, or can I do it?

Definitely - thanks for the nice status update!
