My understanding is that there were plenty of people interested in
seconding this when I originally raised it, but that they don't
habitually read -vote, and that if I'd spammed -{user,devel} or
similar, we could have had the vote earlier in the year.

I entirely agree that we should have voted when I originally suggested
the idea ( natch ;) ), and I'm sorry that I failed to make that happen
when I could have.

I wonder if, in the circumstances, the DPL should use their power
under 4.2.4 to reduce the discussion period to 1 week. I'd be
surprised if anyone is likely to change their view on the desirability
of choice of init system now - as others have pointed out, the
arguments have been rumbling on for a time.
