Ian Jackson's general resolution to prevent init system coupling has failed to pass, the majority vote deciding that the resolution is unnecessary. This means that not only will Debian's default init be systemd, but packages will not be required to support other init systems. Presumably, this means that using other init systems on Debian (without using systemd as a base) will not be possible without major workarounds, or possibly at all. It also leaves the future of Debian projects such as kFreeBSD unclear, as systemd is linux specific.

The winners are:

Option 4 "General Resolution is not required"

    Can you name names here? Who do you see as the "victims" and "acolytes" and the "prophet" in this case?

    The only victims I see are all of us Debian refugees who have been unexpectedly forced to move to FreeBSD or Slackware with almost no notice. We've been shit upon repeatedly during this whole debacle.

    At least the outcome of this farce of a vote makes me glad that all of my systems will be running FreeBSD 10.1 by the end of this upcoming weekend. I want nothing to do with Debian now. It's a joke project.
