+IMPORTANT DEPRECATION NOTICE (2021-08-20)
+Currently eudev is no longer being supported. Eudev was started, in
+part because systemd did not build on musl-libc systems and a fork
+of the udev portion of systemd was required. Currently systemd can
+be built on musl systems with patches from the openembedded team, and
+the need to maintain a separate fork is no longer pressing.
+Nonetheless, many distros have adopted eudev as their device manager
+and so may want to continue using it. Anyone interested in inheriting
+the repo may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
+ Anthony G. Basile
This git repo is a fork of git://anongit.freedesktop.org/systemd/systemd
with the aim of isolating udev from any particular flavor of system
initialization. In this case, the isolation is from systemd.
