    I keep thinking the same thing. Although US Congress is actually (somehow) slower

          First good news in months.

          It will avoid Debian becoming accidentally locked in to a particular init system (for example, because so much unrelated software has ended up depending on a particular init system that the burden of effort required to change init system becomes too great).
          Yes... er... accidentally.

            Really starting to think that Jackson had some kind of mental break and is no longer in touch with reality. Does he think that Gnome will be patched to not need logind? Or maybe he wants it removed all together, even after it just resumed it's position as default?

                  Yeah... it's a good idea Ian!
                  And an idea better than that is to put on your shoulders all the work to patch all the upstream projects and the following work to maintain those patches downstream.

                    I don?t know the specifics but Funtoo has patched Gnome 3 to work without systemd.

                      Why not just switch them all to Arch.

                      Never understood the whole unstable comments about arch.. 1. They do have a testing repo 2. the packages they use are all stable releases from the package creator for the most part.. People that tend to have problems get packages from the AUR or do something stupid 9/10 times.. Now there are times something just goes weird, not saying your hiccup wasnt that case, but the wiki on arch and their blog with updates really make it one the best distros out there.

                      Course debian is supposed tobe stable they use packages that are a 1-2 years old
