Comment 5 for bug 1109029

I disagree. Dracut builds fine from source and builds initrds which are usable. As dracut offers additional features compared to initramfs-tools, it is required in certain use cases. As dracut can be installed in parallel to initramfs-tools without interfering with its functionality, either this issue should be solved or dracut should not be conflicting with initramfs-tools.
If this issue is not solved and dracut continues to conflict with initramfs-tools, dracut cannot be installed. Thus either this issue has to be resolved, the conflict has to be removed or the package dracut needs to be dropped from Ubuntu. Either way, the importance of this bug is not "wishlist" in my opinion.
