Package: tech-ctte

An Ubuntu developer just brought the following Debian changelog entry to my

 tftp-hpa (5.2-17) experimental; urgency=low
   * Removing upstart hacks, they are ugly and upstart is dead now.

Since various members of the Technical Committee argued that choosing a
default would not prevent Debian from supporting other init systems, I would
like to hear from those members how they think this should be addressed.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.

The technical committe was asked in #746715 to address the removal of
support for upstart in a package.

==== RESOLUTION ====

The issue of init system support recently came to the Technical
Committee's attention again.[1]

For the record, the TC expects maintainers to continue to support
the multiple available init systems in Debian.  That includes
merging reasonable contributions, and not reverting existing
support without a compelling reason.

[1] See #746715 for background.


Please see http://bugs.debian.org/746715 for discussion of
this bug.
