Yes, this is the freedom of the people that do the work to take some
decisions. Freedom is one of the rights for people that work on the
distribution too, don't you think so ?

and usually HE CAN NOT with the most new technologies introduced in Fedora
the first two releases (PulseAudio, KDE 4.0...)

because your fukcing holy cow is not well tested and stable enough
and that it was planned for Fedora 14 and reverted at the last moment
and now a version later /run was introduced and discussed
not long ago shows that there are some peopole in the fedora community
with the only interest getting their stuff to as many users as possible
without a real interest if they can live with it

AND THAT IIS WHY YOZ SHOULD INSTALL SYSTEMD ONLY FOR NEW INSTALLATIONS TO
GET A USERBASE FOR BUGREPORTS AND LAVE SINCE YEARS LUCKY USERS FUCK IN
And who is gonna do the testing of 2 distributions? Because testing 2 different
init systems is like testing 2 different distributions. Fedora QA are already
overloaded enough so we can't make that on them.
And who is gonna do the work on all the patches for working with and making
use of the features of the 2 different init systems? I would not do such thing
for my packages for sure.
As soon as some core component changes I'll support it only whenever I'm
involved. YES, THIS IS MY FREEDOM TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO!
Though I'll let everyone that wants to comaintain smth to do the work to
support alternatives but I'm still failing to see the army of contributors
just sitting and waiting for what to do. Until this happens people should
remember that the one that do the works has freedom too and if they don't like
smth they are free to come with better implementation and offer it.
