As explained before: If someone wants to make something happen, they're
more than free to do so. There is simply no need for any statement from
Debian. What is appreciated is commitment and action. Notify when you
have concrete problems with something.
Your "strong argument by systemd sceptics" gives the impression, despite
several explanations given by me and on Planet GNOME, that we do not
consider or need to be taught to think about portability. If you want a
productive discussion or change feel free to reach out to us. What I
quoted from you comes across as a bit condescending and mistrusting.
I've made clear that any cooperation is more than welcome (alternative
implementations for APIs or just constructive discussions). I discussed
within the release team mailing list (they're public), various others
agree. Nobody disagrees.
