I'm not afraid of learning new things, I'm a teacher and researcher as a
profession. The real problem is: why waste time on something that is
linux only, be it systemd or upstart, if it is not portable, or even has
the chance to be. I think GNU is the right organization to handle
matters like this, at least if the target is free (as in copyleft)
software. If not, I think Debian is on the wrong track compared to its
social contract ...
