Before I start calling this a conspiracy, let me ask here:
Has anyone from the (current) D-Bus community got any knowledge of what the
(kernel) D-Bus guys are doing? Despite asking several times for it, they have
not shared details with us, they have not posted their source code, they have
not tried to interact with the current, existing and experienced developers.
As far as I know, their current code consists of (unpublished) ideas and the
systemd-bus module to interface with the (unpublished) kernel side. Does
anyone know anything new?
if so, please share with the rest. This is getting ridiculous.
Lennart, if you have slides or notes from Nuremberg, please share them with
us. It's high time you guys came forward with your ideas.
(A really frustrated) Thiago

This past week, developers from the KDE, GNOME, Unity and Razor-qt
projects met at the SUSE offices in Nürnberg to improve on collaboration
between the projects by discussing specifications.
5) Sync up between kernel and desktop people about dbus
When I arrived, Lennart was showing details of his current implementation of
DBus into the Linux Kernel.
This was mostly too low-level for me (and arriving in the middle of it didn't
help), but what I learned was the big plan around this, the idea of contained
applications for security, with the kernel as intermediary (with security
policies) between the secure app and the rest of the world (see also next
Thiago, if you're not yet following this topic, I have a strong feeling that
you should :-)
