[opensuse-factory] Warning / ANNOUNCE : upcoming changes in upstream systemd regarding /media, /tmp and /var/run | /var/lock
Hi all,

this is a announcement regarding changes which have just landed in
upstream systemd (not yet released nor pushed to Factory)
regarding /media and /tmp:
- /media will no longer mounted as tmpfs. This is because udisks2 will
no longer use /media for mounting removables devices
but /run/media/<user>
- /var/run and /var/lock are no longer bind-mounted to /run | /run/lock.
We should replace those directories with symlink to /run | /run/lock
(probably at initrd time, this is what is done on Fedora)
- /tmp is mounted as tmpfs, to make the default setups as stateless as
possible. As stated on , we might need to
fix some applications to use /var/tmp instead of /tmp when they need
persistent storage. Another big issue is educating users.
