I remember discussing systemd a while ago.
My opinion was that the vote was called too soon for choosing the default init. If it was to take place today we would have more context regarding systemd. Is it technically reliable? How about the community?
I have nothing against systemd but this is not the best init for a system such as Debian. The project just doesn't fit into Debian

Personally I think systemd has the same problem as Gnome these days, things are changing a bit too much, they'd both need a LTS to fit into Debian stable. And I'd be pretty miffed if firefox or something depended on either.

LTS is a crapout, (copout?) kde plasma in stretch is LTS and they haven't updated jack. LTS is just another slogan. All upstream wants to do is make new stuff that's more like windows every release. All LTS means is, "It's sort of broken, but we promise the next ver will be better, so go ahead and release it."

The pressure on debian leadership is obvious, release the new stable without trendy new 'linux thing' or desktop, or accept the broken ver into stable and call it LTS, with a promise of support that can't be fulfilled.

I swear, 15 yr old window managersand DSL or KNOPPIX from 15 yrs ago are more stable than this newer stuff. Honest, get a dsl 3 or knoppix 3 and see how often you can crash it? Now, they can be hard to boot, but that's another issue. The point is, once booted, it used to be true that LINUX don't crash.

IIRC, there was a proposal to upgrade Plasma 5.8 LTS in Stretch to a newer point release, but it hasn't been done for the fear of breaking it.

Sadly, as LTS versions go, you may be correct. But in Debian Stable, virtually any software with an active maintainer can be considered LTS. The same is with systemd.
Oh, wait...it's not :mrgreen:

LTS may have outlasted it's duty cycle. since it was originally designed to help users avoid systemd in jessie.... Now, it's a fad in other places to help users avoid other inevitable breakage from other distro upgrades.... Those distrossss know who they are....
Next up Systemd deps on m$ kernel.... and ban Linus from the systemd bug tracker, like pottering has wanted to do for years now....

Are you completely deluded?

So the "longterm" kernels listed over at https://www.kernel.org/ were designed for jessie? What a load of crap.

Please stop posting this FUD, it's getting really boring...

"longterm" -- how do you get LTS from "longterm". Must be the new vernacular or some other silly "crap" thought up lately to be distributed thoughout the enterprises. linux.com

yes Please stop, you might want to try taking that head off the stick and have it examined. [code]"And don't take it personally, I'm just trying to stay in the non-caustic tone and spirit of these boards."[/quote]

might want to consider asking to have this thread locked too.

Is the Debian systemd mailing list and bts offline for maintance? Fri Jan 25 2019

Anyone have a link to share like
https://salsa.debian.org/systemd-team/systemd
or upstreams - if is what you call it?
https://github.com/systemd
or
https://systemd.io/
looks like r/linux is the only place with recent links debain systemd bug reports and other assorted current debian issues.

I just can't find the mailing list or bts for some reason......

LTS stands for "Long Term Support", and it isn't relevant only to Debian. So I don't really know what this:
llivv wrote:"longterm" -- how do you get LTS from "longterm".

meant.

Please keep the discussion civil and in good spirit, at least. Refer to my "discussion" with H.o.a.S. Or I will ask that this thread be locked.

As succinctly as possible ...... as of Fri Jan 25 2019
Where have the Debian systemd mailing list and Debian systemd bts gone?
offline?
anyone have a current link to either?

It is all mostly just gossip anyway, is that the same as FUD ?

Is that a threat or a promise ? What was the point in starting a gossip thread to start with ?
As far as Debian LTS, goes it has nothing to do with systemd, it will continue, and is for LongTermSupport of the stable releases,see:
https://wiki.debian.org/LTS
Debian Long Term Support

Debian Long Term Support (LTS) is a project to extend the lifetime of all Debian stable releases to (at least) 5 years. Debian LTS will not be handled by the Debian security team, but by a separate group of volunteers and companies interested in making it a success.
