upstart is older than systemd
mkinitramfs is older than dracut
Whether a project makes sense or not has nothing at all to do with whether it's younger or older than some other project. systemd is a good and useful project despite having been started after upstart because it's technically superior and one couldn't have altered upstart to provide the same functionality without essentially rewriting it from scratch.
eudev otoh is useless. udev works perfectly fine without systemd, and while it's true that udev doesn't support old kernels, it doesn't really matter. Because why would you run a long-obsolete kernel, and yet require a brand-new version of udev?
systemd+udev merge does not make any sense
This is a development issue and thus should be left up to the systemd/udev maintainers.
they are just pushing systemd everywhere
How so? Udev works perfectly fine without systemd.
/usr on a separate partition has worked for ages (and still works everywhere !fedora)
- The "separate /usr" thing has nothing, zilch, nada to do with systemd or udev, both work perfectly fine without /usr. The only difference between systemd and upstart/sysvinit in this regard is that systemd prints a warning (which you can choose to ignore).
- There are things that break when /usr isn't mounted during early boot, though perhaps it doesn't affect your system. Do you really think Poettering makes that kind of stuff up just to piss people off?
- Fedora supports a separate /usr partition just fine by mounting it inside the initramfs during early boot.
Get your facts straight next time before making random false accusations.
