Just for the record: We already have 30+ packages in Debian shipping
native systemd unit files.
For a standard Debian (desktop) installation there are not that many
sysv init scripts left, that need to be run.
And the number of native systemd services is continually growing, thanks
to systemd upstream pushing the mantra of including those files directly

I'm mainly interested in systemd (as Tollef) and we are already working
hard to make the integration and transition as smooth as possible.

The lack of participation on all these threads doesn't mean there isn't
anything happening on the systemd side, on the contrary.
Personally, I sadly noticed that all these previous discussions lead to
nothing, so I just tried to keep out of it.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
