Bug#727708: multiple init systems - formal resolution proposal
I hereby propose the following resolution:
1. Support for sysvinit is mandatory in jessie.
2. Debian intends to support multiple init systems, for the
foreseeable future, and so long as their respective communities
and code remain healthy. Nothing outside of an init system's
implementation may require a specific init system to be pid 1.
Please send comments, or formal amendment proposals, by 2014-01-28
17:00 UTC. I will call a vote on some version(s) then.
