What's needed to have proper udeb support?
This page tries to list the remaining pieces to get proper udeb support.
- proper integration, in most places dpkg (the suite) does not know anything about udebs, as the support has been built on the upper layers instead
If you'd like to revisit this topic, please see the previous "discussion" on this (but be advised that this got a bit out of hand and it might be a bit unpleasant to read) in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=452273#90 and https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=575059#60.
- revisit discussion about Package-Type field in binary udeb packages
- field to note that "parts" are copied into initrd (to make staying GPL compliant be enforcable automatically)
- use of Conflicts?
