Meanwhile, If I understand correctly, all X drivers inherit critpath
because they are required by xorg-x11-drivers which is itself a critpath
So either xorg-x11-drivers stops requiring the non-critpath drivers,
which is probably not what we want because they would then not be
installed by default, either xorg-x11-drivers and all but the selected
few X drivers loose their critpath status. Without reading about the
plan you mentioned above, I'll tend for the later, but again I'll be
glad to learn about the current status.
Given that critpath is currently done solely by dependency resolution
of certain comps groups, 'excluding' a package isn't really possible.
If you look at the group, you'll note:
<!-- Just the mandatory packages from base-x. Might want to cut this
down to a small set of specific drivers in the future. -->
If someone wants to send me a list, I'd be happy to do the comps edit.
(I would assume ati, evdev, fbdev, intel, nouveau, synaptics, vesa.)
