I mean that people cannot be required to fix bugs.

Furthermore, the people in the Release Team have the final word (modulo 
GR override) on what they consider "release critical". This definition 
happens to currently match the policy severity definition, but isn't 
necessarily so; in particular, they've used their 'wheezy-ignore' tags 
during the last freeze for bugs that had a particular severity but that 
they didn't consider "release-critical".

I can't insist enough on this: the Debian procedures have been correctly 
followed; the TC took a decision which could be challenged by a simple 
majority GR [0]. This GR has never been called by anyone with voting 
rights, or hasn't gathered enough seconds to get to a vote. The TC 
decision stays in force as a decision to have systemd as default init 
system for jessie.

You might very well be unhappy with this situation, the way the decision 
was taken, the way it wasn't challenged by the DDs, the fact that no 
conditions were posed to systemd maintainers, or anything else, that's 
totally fine. Please just be aware that repeating your unhappiness ad 
nauseam will not change that fact.
