@sazius: it will definitely affect Jessie. The most substantial part of the decision is indeed deciding what will be the default init system *for Jessie*.

i am confused: i counted 4-2 for "systemd" and andreas being undecided yet, did i miss a post or a member? furthermore, it seems that the decision is much more complicated than just choosing the default init system, and also encompasses whether sysvinit-style scripts will still be supported in the future (most seem to agree on that)

@anarcat: is hard to answer given I don't know who are the 6 you are already aware of, but AFAICT it's definitely 4-3. (And yes, the decision is more complex and all of its complexity is being handled IMHO, but some social networks out here limits messages to 140 chars, so I had to summarize ;-)).

i am aware of: bdale: systemd, rra: systemd, ian: upstart, colin: upstart, don: systemd, keith: systemd, missing (afaik): andreas

so i guess andreas took upstart's side? anyone else that's missing?
