Granted the summary above says 'Minor', I still don't think this is an issue worth bothering about. The cited differences are the comments at the beginning and end of the files, as in the file '/etc/hosts' vs. the lack of comments for the various udev rules files. Actually, that current difference makes a little sense - '/etc/hosts' is a standard configuration file, while the naming and contents of the udev-rules files will vary greatly from system to system, so any comments added to those are bound to be a little pointless.

My vote is to just let it be and close this ticket. But I'll let someone else make that decision.

Half our udev rule files come from upstream now, and there's no way we can add this header and footer to those (at least not without modifying them after installation). Almost another half come from the udev-config tarball, and they're installed with install, not cat. (It seems that we only put the begin/end lines in files created using cat.)

The only udev rules files that this would really even apply to are the custom rules files from section 7.13.1 ("Creating stable names for network interfaces"), as Peter's original post said. But if the rest of the udev files aren't going to have these begin/end lines, why put them in the files created here?

I'd also say leave it as-is, for that reason.
