The default init system is pulled in via the "init" meta package, which
depends on systemd-sysv [linux-any] | sysvinit-core

This means the non-Linux ports will get sysvinit as before and
sysvinit-core makes sure to pull in sysv-rc (+startpar and insserv) and

The "init" meta package is only omitted if you use the minbase or buildd
variant of debootstrap. So this shouldn't affect your live images.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
