Indeed. Jessie should be released once "large numbers of our users [will] no
longer have a bad experience as a result of being switched to systemd [because
all relevant bugs have been fixed]".

As somebody who is active in user support on IRC I dread the jessie release if it
means that we will ask people for years to come if they have switched to systemd
after their upgrade and, if not, walk them through the process. So far most
users who had a bad experience with jessie did so because they did *not* switch
and the fact that -shim wasn't ready.

"having a bad experience" should directly translate into bugs that can, and have
to, be fixed before the release. I would welcome a more technical discussion at
this point rather than an emotional one.

Thank you and everybody else for their wonderful work and patience.
