Actual text of the approved proposal, since it was modified slightly
in the meeting:

Any package in Fedora that provides a SYSV init script instead of a
systemd service unit will be retired from the distribution at the
branch point of Fedora 24. Exceptions will be considered on a
case-by-case basis if submitted through a FESCo ticket at least three
weeks prior to the branch point. FESCo will coordinate with the Change
Wrangler to provide periodic reminders of this deadline mailed out.
FESCo explicitly does not advocate the removal of the sysvinit
compatibility functionality from systemd itself, as we do not want to
negatively impact third-party software that may still be relying upon
it. We will also update all packaging documentation around the use of
SYSV init scripts to indicate that its use in Fedora is not
recommended, but that it may be useful for EPEL.
Version: GnuPG v2
