I've just submitted systemd v185 to updates_testing.

There are several important changes worth noting:
 1. "systemd-sysvinit" has been merged into the main "systemd" package
thus effectively making systemd the only choice for booting.
 2. "systemd" package now contains systemd-udevd binary thus replacing
the separate udev package (I see no reason to keep the binaries in
separate packages).
 3. The libudev major number has been bumped so several packages will
need rebuilt when this hits main, but so far I've only rebuilt lvm2 for
updates_testing. This seems to be enough for basic testing (I have LVM
 4. Due to the new udevd path, dracut needed updating too. I've updated
this and submitted to release (as it's backwards compatible). At a later
date I'll update to latest dracut.

Please ensure you are capable of restoring your system in the event of
things messing up. This will mean booting and manually downgrading
packages and reinstalling the older udev package.

If all is well, this will go into cauldron at the end of the week.
