This is not necessary. Well, not at first.
The changes to debootstrap I’d “love” to have are:
① add a new --variant called sysvinit, which excludes all the
systemd bits and explicitly adds sysvinit-core; this variant
will only be usable with jessie and up, but as it must be
invoked explicitly will not do anything to older releases.
This is the change we’d need now.
② change the scripts for --variant minbase, buildd, fakechroot,
scratchbox to exclude systemd, sysvinit (and, for good measure
on certain downstreams) upstart. This will not touch either
--variant sysvinit or base (the default).
This is a change that could be put into experimental, as it
is not necessary for either the release or d-i. Then upload
that to sid after the unfreeze.
③ To be fair, add --variant=upstart based on the sysvinit variant.
And openrc. But this all will end up in experimental, too.
I’d actually be happy to try and hack these myself and submit
them for inclusion. Is the --exclude not working bug fixed by
