Re: systemd requiring Linux >= 3.7

Thanks Martin. Could you give me your thoughts on what a negative vote on the current proposal would mean in practice?

This is not a problem, because Debian will continue to support
sysvinit. It is just not the default. Maybe you will not be able
to run certain programs, such as GDM, but how relevant is this?

I'm maintaining an embedded product myself. It is based on
Debian with kernel 3.2 and upstart! We will probably update the
kernel and move to systemd. But if we could not update the kernel,
we would just stay with upstart or downgrade to sysvinit.
