Debian has agreed via the tech-ctte and via the recent GR that installing 
systemd by default on new installations *is* the *right thing*.

And jessie is frozen. Since ages ;-)

Please accept that. 

That said, useful patches for the release-notes and the installation-guide are 
still welcome I suppose - though I (personally) don't consider patches adding 
documentation for legacy init systems (with known deficencies for decades) to 
be very useful for future minded people. But I don't maintain said 

I would imagine patches documenting how to properly use systemd and make use 
of its features and benefits are more a.) welcomed, b.) useful (for total 
newbies and old farts alike) and c.) better use of time. YMMV. Also, 
wiki.debian.org/systemd should have all the info (including how to avoid it in 

So I do think this is out of scope for discussion on this list right now.

(If you have code patches for stretch (=jessie+1), submit them to the bts and 
start a discussion after the release.)
