Hi Shawn,

Great. Thanks a lot. As discussed on IRC, I will transfer today
the "ownership" of DRACUT to you on OBS and bugzilla.

Only package remaining is Plymouth and I guess that people
rather see it disappear than to help out.

No, I don't want to see it disappear at all (since it has
replaced all other boot splash alternative, for the good) but I
don't have time to maintain it.

How long does the average system nowadays take until X starts up? If
there is a black screen for a few seconds, so what? That's the time
the initrd takes to load if plymouth is in there anyways ;-)

Plymouth also allows smooth transition (no flicker) between splash and
display manager. And it can display a non frightening UI to request
passphrase for encrypted disk.

displaying the non frightening (G)UI to request the passphrase seems
(often) not to work in 13.1:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=851960

Which is exactly why we need somebody to actively maintain plymouth..
