On the verge of greatness!?

Postby golinux » Sun Nov 09, 2014 3:30 pm

You ready for this?

Has the systemd fork already happened?


Would this post be helpful to what you're doing? (Or did he get the idea from here?)
May the FORK be with you!

Dunno where the guy in the second link got the idea. I'm not sure where I got the idea, but I think it was from dzz. That guy has more packages pinned to wheezy than we have, and that's something I would like to get away from. I worry that it may stop working at some point. Every time I look at my pin list, I think of all the times newbs have been warned against mixing stable and testing. Maybe mixing oldstable and stable isn't quite as bad, so we might survive after the freeze.

Thanks for the links.

I hope you realize realize that the subject of this post is very tongue-in-cheek . . . ;)

I appreciate your very clear and informative posts on -user. Maybe there is hope short of abandonment?

That's encouraging! I've been plugging Refracta whenever there is an opportunity - trying to point folks in this direction and trying to connect those currently working solo. I did get a 'warning' from Don Armstrong on -user a few weeks back that my posts about Refracta were "off topic" but I'm not easily intimidated and persisted. :) I do hope you and dzz etc. can continue to keep Jessie free of systemd!

I post links to refracta too, at facebook-debian.
I think there is interest ...


i can't say that i am a big fan of "more users", in general. In the case of refracta it won't hurt .... but in general? more is not always better ....
So i herd u liek mudkip?

This is true but since it's unlikely that droolers will be flocking to Refracta, I'm not too worried.

Spambot trick - copy bits of existing posts, so it looks like a real post. Have links in signature.
