Just let me know privately. I was focussing on improving release-team
bits and I don't like to think (or speak) about tone if I have
participated in the discussion.

Not good to hear though, I need to understand the openSUSE viewpoint as

Mageia 2 will have an optional sysvinit (default is systemd). I don't
really see the problem for Mageia. In case of sysvinit, some minor stuff
might not work or might not work (perhaps daemons would still work under
sysvinit, don't care). For me, if you choose the fallback, don't expect
things to work perfectly.

Is this the openSUSE viewpoint?
