Quoting myself from the announcement: "If you don't do RT development
or doing RT development only for embedded cases, ... then it doesn't
mean anything for you."
rtkit is only relevant for the desktop. end of story.
A "collection of desktop-oriented daemons"? Do I smell D-Bus fud
again? This is getting so old. And stays so wrong. D-Bus is deeply
rooted in system now, even the init system speaks it now. Get over it

Oh my. Just because someone mentions that UNIX has issues you don't
have to call him "ignorant" and "arrogant".
Also, it's not me who declared that UNIX groups are broken. That's a
fight others have sucessfully fought through the distros
already. PolicyKit entered all major distributions.
If you think that UNIX is the only true verity and think that pk is an
abomination then bring that up with the pk guys, not with me.

Then don't do it. You are clearly not the intended audience of rtkit
Have you actually read my announcement mail? This stuff is only useful
for out-of-the-box RT support on major distributions. If you roll
everything your own, because that makes you happy, then ignore rtkit.
Also, rtkit is just an offer. No need to adopt it if you think it is
an abomination. But if you do care that your software performs well
out-of-the-box on newer distros then think about it. The API is there,
you just make use of it.

Yes, we hate security. And it is our declared objective to make your
life miserable. Surprised?

Didn't you know, it's world domination we are going for! We want to
control your computer and then you, muhahaha. And we take away your
freedoms. And creating a working desktop is just our cover for
this. Muahahahaah! Muahahahahaahahaaaa!

Yes, do it! Not sure what exactly you want to patch out. But please do
