Re: Why focus on systemd?

I understand your reasons for thinking Systemd is bad for Debian. I do, and I
also agree with some of them. However, Debian is composed of a diverse group
of people who have every viewpoint under the sun from Systemd is the bane of
Linux, to Systemd is the best thing to ever happen to Linux. No matter where
you fall in that spectrum though, there is one common denominator, and that
is that we all use and love Debian. Let's start from there.

Making Systemd default in Jessie I believe runs against the Debian
philosophy of conservative approach and "release when ready". While I
personally disagree with Systemd, I have no problems with it being a part of
the Debian family of supported apps. I do feel it is very unwise though to
make it the default in Debian because of its monolithic nature and because
of the dependency chain problems, which right now at least, make it
difficult to run an alternative init system, which limits user choice.

This mailing list is about Debian users. Let's stick to talking about issues
affecting Debian users. This is my take, and why I oppose the decision to
make Systemd the default in the next stable release. I certainly have no
qualms about including Systemd in the next stable release, and I actually
encourage it, so that people will have time to play with it and come to know
and possibly even fall in love with it. I seriously do not understand why
this needs to be rushed.
