The way you did it is like "here is a cat in a box: you may try to play with it but your mileage may vary". After such a proposal, personally, I don't have any desire to try my luck. On a side note, I would never imagine that I'd raise it here and be a proponent of it, but here it comes: should we start working toward integrating systemd into Owl? Over the last 6 months I was kind of "forced" to work extensively with distros that switched to systemd. To do my job properly I had to learn the design of that framework and it really looks logical and once you jump through the hoops of the learning curve you cannot deny that Poettering and Co did a huge amount of work to standardise the startup & init process. The documentation is also _very_ good. Sooner or later we will face the fact that we should decide whether we go with the trend or make our own path. However, knowing our limited resources I doubt that we are going very successful with the latter. Opinions? -- (GM)
