The TC decision of the 11th of February said:

  Should the project pass a General Resolution before the release of
  "jessie" asserting a "position statement about issues of the day" on
  init systems, that position replaces the outcome of this vote and is
  adopted by the Technical Committee as its own decision.

This a GR proposal is a "position statement about issues of the day"
(as it says in the "Notes and rubric".)  It's on the subject of init
systems.  Therefore it is covered by this wording.

As a consequence, the GR replaces the outcome of the TC vote.  The GR
text explicitly adopts the existing TC decision on the default, and
adds to it.
