Subject: Re: [devuan-dev] [DNG] Way forward

I mentioned before that I didn't take your joke badly, and I do think others shouldn't either.

About corporations:

If they are that interested in Devuan (and yes I'm repeating myself) they should put some dedicated maintainers our way so we can remove all of libsystemd0.

I've often heard it said 'linux' would be nowhere without them but consider that we've found ourselves in the situation where systemd must be removed, because they insisted on inserting it into every piece of userland they could.

After a little thought my view is that we can't afford to care about what they think. It's a simple exchange where everyone benefits, but as to what they think this shouldn't go anywhere near development.

I don't think we should constrain ourselves in our personalities or viewpoint we have, there's enough of that shit going around. If we start arguing over a joke that landed on april fools, I wonder how long it is until we get COC'd to death.
