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.

Option 4 "General Resolution is not required"
Being disappointed makes people unhappy.
Doesn't happen to me, the two feelings are very loosely coupled.
If you need to work with someone who is unhappy, it assists you to realize that they are unhappy.
If the work is what makes people unhappy, then what aren't they stop doing it? Especially in open-source, when it's not about earning your living.
The reason that they are unhappy is nearly irrelevant. Compassion is reasonable is you like, or want to like, that person even if you find their reason for being unhappy unreasonable.
I'm lost: for me the reason is highly relevant - otherwise, how can I help them if I can?
Surely, I can empathize with them. But if the work that was agreed makes them unhappy, then the agreement takes precedence over their feeling - the only release they will ever get is the release from the responsibility of the agreed work.
