Well people are interested in whining but no doing real work it seems

Ok, I havn't seen thoose problems in my embedded things, but embedded
now can host regular devuan, and also the busybox situation might have


To solve this at a dist level, we need to assign people to maintain
. a separate kernel (not needing initrd) for a specific group of systems
. a slimmer init
. a fsck.ext4 (perhaps static)
. a mount (perhaps static) that makes it possible to mount /usr
. hwclock possible run after mount -a

Sound interesting ?
