Making a big change like that _after_ beta seems like an invitation to
trouble, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt to you as the QA guy. So in
that case, the requirement could simply be that at the time of the beta,
they do basically the same things, or in cases where they do different
things, it is 1) intentional *and* 2) documented.
It's not really a big change, it's a couple of lines in a couple of spec
files, and it's fairly easy to test (do live/image composes still pull
systemd? does an upgrade from f13 replace upstart with systemd? okay,
then we're good). It has nothing like the wide scope of the actual
*code* change involved here, which we will have been testing all along.
