It just ended now (It was 4:4 systemd fd as candidates at the time of the posting (which is when I called it too, since there’s a huge backlash against tactical voting), in which case there is no casting vote) with cjwatson casting a D above FD. It’s pseduo-officially over (waiting for secretary to confirm) and we’ll use systemd.
Fantastic. Systemd makes it so much easier to build init scripts and up till now there hasn’t been a great distro option for servers.
The result has now been announced officially.
As expected, this resulted in a lot of trolls flooding the mailing list (again)..
