Re: Good encapsulation, Dr S
Parsing text files for config is a slow legacy solution without full auditing (bar a full config management solution) that is incapable of per field ACLs.
Wait, you're defending this stuff in a thread where it cannot even properly handle mounting disks?
One commenter in the site Mr Tasker linked talks of wasting over 22 hours on this issue - and you want to try and make out it's faster?
Others report issues of systemd silently unmounting devices (ie with no warning) and then writing data to the underlying file system where it is not intended to be.
And you think this is defensible? How about instead of sitting here defending systemd, go and learn how to code and fix the issue that's been a problem for some 4 years now!
