Details

Description: The udev package ships some files that aren't used in Arch Linux. So for keep it simply and stupid...

/* can be deleted */
40-ia64.rules: only for IA64/MIPS (not used in i686 or x86_64) (for kernel option CONFIG_SGI_SN)
40-ppc.rules: Maybe for ArchLinuxPPC project (for kernel options CONFIG*ISERIES*)
40-s390.rules: (not used in i686 x86_64) (for kernel option CONFIG_ZCRYPT on s390)
40-zaptel.rules: (not in kernel-vanilla/arch modules, there are a pkgbuild in unsupported that make this module and rules that are needed)
40-infiniband.rules: (not used, arch-kernel not support CONFIG_INFINIBAND)
/* end of can be deleted */

If you prefer in don't delete all/some these files, maybe rename to "{name}.rules.notused" or "{name}.rules.example" so udev don't look on these files.

/* need to edit */
40-isdn.rules: there are a reference to group "dialout" (inexistent in UID/GID database for arch), i see that these group in other files are changed from "dialout" to "uucp", so maybe this need to include in the "arch-udev-rules.patch"
/* end of need to edit */

Move readme-udev-arch.txt to /usr/share/doc/udev/readme-udev-arch.txt this more apropiate location.

Additional info:
udev-140-1 (and below)

We ship packages as they should, so removing standard rules is not imho not needed here, some might need them.
Changing dialout to uucp is needed in every rule file, will do this in next release which comes soon.

Actually, udev ships these rules in a directory that is not normally installed.

We take a extra step in the PKGBUILD to copy rules/packages/* to the package.

What's suggested here is simply to NOT copy all of them because they're not used.

I moved the dialout sed line to the end of the build function to cover the ISDN case

Also, regarding the readme - I STRONGLY think we should delete it. udev has very good man pages, and we do nothing Arch-specific that is not covered by the normal udev docs. If anything is missing, the additional documentation should be submitted upstream for inclusion (just like all our other packages)

40-zaptel.rules: (not in kernel-vanilla/arch modules, there are a pkgbuild in unsupported that make this module and rules that are needed)
40-infiniband.rules: (not used, arch-kernel not support CONFIG_INFINIBAND)
those 2 left if someone needs it in a custom kernel.
Rest removed as suggested.
