That's something I've always wondered. It seems to me that we'll
*never* reach any form of consensus in debian-devel about switching to
a different sysvinit. So who could make this decision? There's the
technical committee, but with due respect, I'm not sure they'd be able
to vote on this in a reasonable timeframe. It seems that everyone has
a strong opinion when it comes to upstart and systemd, even people who
don't work on lower level stuff. Whole proposals get stalled because
basically anyone can become a blocker.
