I am putting Dmitry and his other seconders in the To field of this
mail to draw their attention to this question.

My personal opinion:

I seconded Dmitry's proposal because I felt it should be on the
ballot.  I would vote Dmitry's option ahead of hartmans1.

I think the title "Affirm Init Diversity" for hartmans1 is rather
misleading.  hartmans1 seems to legitimise uncontrolled adoption of
non-daemon-startup systemd features; in this sense it is weaker even
than my compromise proposal.

Someone who is fully committed to init diversity should definitely
vote Dmitry's ahead of hartmans1.  I am not sure whether they should
vote vote even my compromise proposal ahead of hartmans1.  I'm in
discussions with some strong init diversity advocates about their
motives, to understand that better.
