The firstname.lastname@example.org is meant to be a support mailinglist for the openSUSE distributions.
No one is being helped by the continuation of this thread or other ones like it.
I respectfully request that the discussion of this topic ends and all of the people involved do not create, continue, or restart any discussion about the pros or cons of systemd on this mailinglist again.
Discussions that seek to practically help people with systemd issues are of course perfectly fine, but it is unacceptable to suggest removal of systemd on this list when it has been the only supported init system for months.
Religious discussions about whether systemd is good, or bad, do not help anyone. Take them off our support & development mailinglists.
Failure to comply with my above request, will lead to my recommendation to the openSUSE Board that we consider banning the people ignoring this request. If this is anything more than 2 or 3 people, I will actually consider recommending that the Board discuss removing this entire mailinglist, because I am sick of having to explain to new community members that email@example.com was once a support mailinglist but no longer serves that purpose effectively as it now has far, far too much commentary & techno-nonsense religion discussions by people who love to complain but not contribute.
So, consider this a warning. I'm fed of up reading this nonsense and I will work hard to ensure that it stops if the attendees of this list do not make an effort to end it. Now.
Regards, Richard Brown openSUSE Chairman
You do that and you can say goodbye to me a SUSE user since 5.0 days.
I've never contributed much so my loss won't mean much. But if your view prevails I'm gone.
