Do we want to emphasise purely "sans-systemd", or do we want to promote
"freedom of init choice"?

I'nm not suggesting that we should include systemd in what Devuan provides
(!), but I just think the phrase "freedom of choice" is a more positive and
friendly message for people to see and think "yes, I like that project",
rather than simply saying "no systemd".

Functionally they come down to the same thing, but I think a positive phrase
is better than a negative one.


Atheism is a non-prophet-making organisation.
