greengeek,

With iguleder's explanation above, I see it a bit differently. They (the gatekeepers) didn't listen. It was iguleder, who made the change. My opinion was heard by iguleder, he disabled icanhazip in his Librepup fork of Woof-CE, using his *authority* made a commit to the master branch (initially, I was unsure of this) and the change propagated to the whole project. Technically it got rammed through, it didn't come as a result of a transparent discussion. Unfortunately you and I lack that power and authority to make changes/commits to git/Woof-CE. If something in our view is wrong with Puppy, we can only voice our opinion and nag the devs to the best of our abilities. I sincerely tried my best, show respect, restraint and avoid escalation whenever possible. Others would have done a better job, I'm sure, but there wasn't much competition, as you know. Maybe, I should have kept quiet ... disable the damn thing in every new pup and be happy. Why should I care about others, about noobs and their unwashed, little brothers and sisters?

Actually, they did listen. It took time, but the end result is what you would have wanted (unless I am mistaken). The structure of woof is flexible and publicly available for others to have direct input into without waiting for "devs"to do their thing. (unless I am mistaken).

Decisions have to be made or else nothing progresses - this forum offers an opportunity for those who "have an opinion" to alter the perspective of "those who develop". That opportunity is very valuable but it does not constitute a "directive".

I don't think we should be too critical of devs when we have an equal opportunity to do what they do. Our opinion remains just an opinion unless we take action ourselves.


anikin is like one of those people that just complain, without really providing any solutions.

Is there another place this discussion could happen instead of the systemd thread?

I think his complaints were fair, and others shared concerns too, but I just don't think we should insult devs for choices we don't like.

It's a bit like the arguments over systemd - the code branches off in whatever direction is determined by the lead devs, and the user either has to accept it or create a new direction and fork it for themselves. If the devs are paid staff then it is fair to get upset about their choices. Given that they are not paid they have to have some leeway to make decisions that may be unpopular.

People can boycott systemd if they choose to do so. And they can boycott Puppy too. Or reshape it exactly how they want it. If we want to avoid being led by the nose (like systemd followers) we have to upskill to ensure that we ourselves are capable of creating and maintaining those alternatives.

The fact that BK posted about the use of eudev as a systemd alternative shows that there is a future without systemd. I am sure the best way to implement that will be up for discussion and probably vary from pup to pup.

Just a observation as I know next to nothing about systemd and alternatives. As a end-user however I switched over from Tahr to DebianDog Jessie a month or so ago and initially was wasn't using the systemd type boot, but after having tried it a couple of weeks back I've since stayed with it as it boots/shuts-down quicker and generally seems to run better.

I just found Manjaro-OpenRC which is the easiest and best systemd-free distro I've seen so far. James C posted about it recently, but I got to it via http://systemd-free.org/

Really nice looking and fast. The Xfce desktop uses only 150M RAM (less for the Openbox desktop) on my old P4 laptop. Based on Arch, which I never tried before, but am very impressed with now. Rolling release, so no major upgrades and always up to date. The "stable" version of Manjaro is just two weeks behind cutting-edge Arch. I found Palemoon, Avidemux, and Skype in the repository, which are all unavailable in Debian repositories. And no problem running as root (except for the warnings...) Very well done distro.

Manjaro-OpenRC available here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/manjaro-openrc/

As promised two years ago with the first declaration of Exodus from
Debian, today we can proudly state: we do not go gentle into that good
night.

Now has come the time to announce the Beta release of Devuan.

Debian GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd, on its way to
become much more than that. This Beta release marks an important
milestone towards the sustainability and the continuation of Devuan as
an universal base distribution.

Today Devuan Jessie provides continuity as a safe upgrade path from
Debian Wheezy and a flawless switch from Debian Jessie avoiding most
of the problems introduced by systemd.
