If there are fixes for mkinitrd, they should still go in.
It's still possible to switch back to mkinitrd, especially for finding
issues/incompatibilities with dracut via:
rpm -e dracut --nodeps
zypper install mkinitrd

A few days ago we talked about this in person.

The outcome was to allow dracut to be installed in addition to mkinitrd.
As the next step dracut will create /boot/initramfs files, and all tools
fiddling with mkinitrd|mkinitrd_setup|initrd|/boot/initrd* will be
updated to call dracut instead of mkinitrd. And they will be updated to
handle /boot/initramfs* instead of /boot/initrd*. The only change
affecting kernel-binary.rpm is that an additional, empty ghost file
/boot/initramfs* has to be created to remove old initrds.

I already did a grep through the entire source tree. Packages matching
the pattern above were linked to home:olh:dracut. Now its my task to
wade through that and remove false matches, so that only affected
packages remain in that project.

But as a first step its required to step back and remove mkinitrd
conflicts from dracut, and to create /boot/initramfs* files. Whoever is
in charge for that, please make this change.
