It has been a long, long time since the "campfire" that started all this. I've
been silent since then.

Debian is to be respected forever, as Dungeons and Dragons is to be respected
forever as the first roleplaying game. However, I do not play D&D. I do not
master D&D. I do not like D&D at all, and I make tongue in cheek jokes about
D&D not being a roleplaying game at all with my mates. Why?

It just lay behind.

Debian is about to choose if they will lie behind too. We DO have the
experience and the manpower to keep init scripts and an init infrastructure,
and step ahead. It will be harder than until today.

Do we have the will?
