Due to some technical issues, I’ve been without access to my lists subscription email for a bit more than a week. Once I regained access and proceeded to read the batch of emails, I was - once again - shocked. Shocked at the amount of emails spent on the systemd issue, shocked at the number of people resigning, shocked at the amount of mud thrown.
I just hope that the GR results finally will mean silence and getting over the last 3-6 months.
For the record:
- I seconded the GR because I believed we were moving too fast (I wanted one full release as a transition period, even if that’s a long time)
- I am quite happy with the result of the GR!
- I am not happy with the amount of people leaving (I hope they’re just taking a break)
- I am, as usual, behind on my Debian packaging ☹
However, some of the more recent emails on -private give me more hope, so I’m looking forward to the next 6 months. I wonder how this will all look in two years?
(Side-note: emacs-nox shows me the italic word above as italic in text mode: I never saw that before, and didn’t know, that it’s possible to have italic fonts in xterm! What is this trickery⁈ … it seems to be related to the font I use, fun!)
