Re: Proposal: Init Diversity



Here I formally propose new version of my draft, and withdraw all
previous versions of it.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Being able to run Debian systems with init systems other than
systemd continues to be value for the project. Package MUST work
with pid1 != systemd, unless it was designed by upstream to work
exclusively with systemd and no support for running without
systemd is available.

Software is not to be considered to be designed by upstream to
work exclusively with systemd, merely because upstream do not
provide, and/or will not accept, an init script.

FWIW, you have my permission to quote GR-related mails as needed. We are
on tight schedule.

Thank you, Ian. I agree with your wording. Incorporated and formally
proposed.

This. I hope updated wording can't be read other way.
