Could we have a paragraph documenting how this might impact KVM and Xen guests in typical configurations? Even if the answer is "it's no problem"? --Mattdm (talk) 19:00, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

  • will do Harald (talk) 08:59, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Also, how big is that rescue image going to be, and will it be optional? --Mattdm (talk) 19:02, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

  • There are now dracut-nohostonly and dracut-norescue subpackages, which can be included in an installation set. Harald (talk) 08:59, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Is there a contingency plan for severe security issues or bugs in the rescue-mode kernel or in the rescue tools? Theoretically that won't be used in a situation where the system is accessible for attack in rescue mode, but it might be good to have a plan for updating it if need be. --Mattdm (talk) 19:10, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Not yet, but don't have that strategy either for the old kernel entries, which we keep Harald (talk) 08:59, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
