Debian repeals the merged “/usr” movement moratorium

Debian 12 had aimed to have a merged “/usr” file-system layout similar to other Linux distributions, but The Debian Technical Committee earlier this year decided to impose a merged-/usr file movement moratorium. But now with Debian 12 having been out for a few months, that moratorium has been repealed.

In hoping to have the merged /usr layout ready in time for Debian 13 “Trixie”, yesterday that moratorium was repealed.

I love Debian’s bureaucratic processes and procedures. I imagine all the Debian people working in a giant nondescript grey building with very few windows, somewhere along a generic highway at the edge of a boring suburb of a forgetable town.
