I'm not arguing that, but his statement is also not toward what he voted, but to the vote itself.Not only that, his statement that I linked to is political.
Yes, but if you discard the trolling (which will happen in specific threads anyway), all of them bring new approaches to the discussion. Also, not all of us lurk really deep in the forums. I usually come only to the news related threads.As far as the "off topic" question, we have numerous threads about the systemd vs upstart debate, my point is that every thread even remotely related seems to rehash it again and again.
On having to decide fast, I kind of agree, but not really. I think rushing decisions is what tends to ruin projects, or at least makes them look bad. The decision Debian needs to make fast is what will be in the next release, and IMO it's as simple as "we couldn't decide, so status quo is the obvious choice". I'm all for adopting systemd, but migrating init systems is a fairly big amount of work (and if someone comes with the backwards compatibility, I'd ask what you changed the init system for if you use it mostly for their compatibility with what you already had; this compatibility is not a solution, is a tool to make migration more gradual and nothing else), so a decision in this should be final, not something you could regret and change for the next release. And a final decision should never be rushed.
