[Discuss] systemd revisited

?I noted some Sysadmins and upstream developers (folks with a clear stake
in the outcome but without DD voting credentials) have promised to Fork if
Debian isn't kept usefully Init-neutral.

Normally in voluntary orgs, giving votes to only those doing the work is a
good thing -- that's how the (D)ARPAnet RFC process worked even before IETF
was codified, and that's why it worked -- but in this particular case, the
interests of the upstream &  downstream Devs and frontline Sysadmins are
being ignored.

I don't know what the right answer is, but i know it's not
one-size-fits-all.   If systemd is effectively mandated in all mainstream
distros, a fork for at least embedded use will be needed.
