Amendment (Re: Re-Proposal - preserve freedom of choice of init systems)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
(CC secretary@ to avoid this getting overlooked in the mail flood.)
I hereby formally propose the amendment below (Constitution A.1(1)
`directly by proposer'), and, then, immediately accept it (A.1(2)).
This resets the minimum discussion period (A.2(4)).
For the avoidance of any doubt, I currently intend to not accept any
further amendments. That means that the minimum discussion period
will not be extended any further (unless the DPL intervenes). I
currently intend to call for a vote when the minimum discussion period
elapses, 2 weeks from now.
The amendment is in two parts:
I. In section 2, `Loose coupling of init systems', in the text
`may not require a specific init system', replace `a' by `one':
- In general, software may not require a specific init system to be
+ In general, software may not require one specific init system to be
Explanation: Some people seem to have understood the previous text
as "must work with *all* init systems". I want to clarify that we
just mean that software should not be tied to one specific init
II. Insert new numbered section:
+ 3. As far as we are aware there are currently (17th of October) no
+ bugs in jessie which would be declared RC by this GR.
+ Given the late passage of this resolution, we expect that any
+ intractable bugs which are RC by virtue only of this resolution
+ would be tagged by the release team as `jessie-ignore'.
+ So this proposal is not thought to add blockers to the jessie
And, renumber the already-existing section 3 to be section 4:
- 3. Notes and rubric
+ 3. Notes and rubric
Explanation: It has become clear from the discussion that it is
necessary to explicitly explain the intended effect for jessie.
Comment: The new section 3 does not need any powers of the
Technical Committee - indeed, it is purely informational and
advisory. So it is not part of the amendment's to the TC's
resolution of the 11th of February.
