use a union filesystem approach to LiveCDs and NFS read-only roots but
Fedora has for the time being stayed away from it. It's not like there
isn't lots of custom stuff being put into fedora/redhat kernels that
isn't yet upstream. In fact there was a discussion about getting
UnionFS upstream recently on the kernel list....
A discussion that went nowhere fast. Just like every previous
discussion of unionfs. And actually, we're _very_ resistent to
adding not-upstreamed stuff into the Fedora kernels. Things that are in an
appropriate staging tree? Yeah. But unionfs isn't even there
I have been playing around with the 2.6.28 fc10 kernel from Koji:
It looks like it has the UnionFS patches included. Maybe it'll drop out of a
final release though.
