What documentation?

There is plenty of documentation, probably even more than what
sysvinit ever had :)

But we look for mount options in fstab and mount manuals, not on systemd
(and systemv) manuals - which are pretty difficult read, by the way.

And the sysvinit was documented on the openSUSE PDF big manual, an entire
chapter of well written documentation. Systemd is not.

Obviously /etc/fstab is out of sysvinit's focus so no need to be
documented there.

either in the man pages, in Lennart's blog or
fedora wikis.

Don't blame users for not reading random blogs and random wikis.
Changing syntax of such fundamental config files like fstab should have
been mentioned in ReleaseNotes. There is a note about encrypted
partitions. Why not about nfs?


Many things have changed in this release, and documentation is scarce,
unless one is prepared to dig it out from all over internet - which may not
apply to openSUSE. Yes, I have been told that in a bugzilla, that those
docs do not apply to oS necessarily.

The people that have prepared the distro and made the decisions should have
taken time to document all that they did. And if they did not have time,
the release should have been delayed so that they got the time.

BTW is comment=systemd.automount added for nfs partitions on zypper dup?
If not then it would be a another bug.

Nor is it added by the YaST nfs module. I used it the other day and it did
not add such an option. I reported a bug on it, and now I see two more that
should be added.
