Subject[ANNOUNCE] hotplug-ng 002 release
After a very long delay, the 002 release of the hotplug-ng package
finally escaped from my box and can be found at:

The development tree has been converted over to a git archive, and can
be found at:
and can be browsed online at:;a=log

Nothing major in this release, just lots of bugfixes from a bunch of
different people. Thanks to all of you who sent me fixes for the same
argc bug, I have been sufficiently chastised for such a stupid thing...

Full changelog can be found below, or browsed online at the link above.

So, where to next? After the 001 release announcement, the main thing
that has happened is that this project is pretty much obsolete

Now, with the 2.6.12-rc3 kernel, and a patch for module-init-tools, the
USB hotplug program can be written with a simple one line shell script:
modprobe $MODALIAS

So, with a few more kernel patches for the other subsystems (hint, I'll
gladly take them...) the other helper programs can too go away entirely.
That will leave us with only the main /sbin/hotplug multiplexor program
that any distro that uses udev is starting to abandon entirely.

Oh, and the upstream module-init-tools maintainer needs to accept that
patch one of these days...

If I've missed any patches for the code from anyone, my apologies, can
you please resend them against this latest tree?
