General Resolution is not required
The result for the General Resolution about the init system coupling is out and the result is, not quite surprisingly, “General Resolution is not required”.
When skimming over -devel or -private from time to time, one easily gets the impression that we are all a bunch of zealots, all too eager for fighting. People argue in the worst possible ways. People make bold statements about the future of Debian if solution X is preferred over Y. People call each other names. People leave the project.
At some point you realize, we’re not all a bunch of zealots, it is usually only the same small subset of people always involved in those discussions. It’s reassuring that we still seem to have a silent majority in Debian that, without much fuss, just do what they can to make Debian better. In this sense: A General Resolution is not required.
