If you intend the scope of this bug to involve overruling maintainers'
decisions in packages other than NM, what other packages/bugs did you
have in mind? Is it just udisks2/#923387, or are there more?
I understand (but I don't think it has been explicitly stated) that the
TC is going to decline to overrule on the question of init scripts?
I'm going to beg that question for the rest of this mail, but obviously
if I'm wrong that will increase the scope somewhat.
Please overrule the maintainer in #923387 so that it is can be used on
systems with elogind; it has been tested and shown to work thus as well
as being supported by upstream.
Mark tells us that there are not currently any other packages which
could be used with elogind were it not for an incorrect dependency on
libpam-systemd, so I hope we don't need to worry about the broader
question any further.
 to that end, orphan-sysvinit-scripts is in NEW, and while I hope
your ruling will not result in a bonfire of perfectly good init scripts,
I hope that maintainers who decide to ditch them will let us know so we
can add them there
 I've not restated my rationale about how technologies like elogind
are important to the project per GR etc etc. I can if you like, but I
don't think that's necessary here
