what would this mean for systems not using systemd?

Systems not using systemd already fall back to ConsoleKit, which does not
have any maintainer. We don't support features like suspend or hibernate on
ConsoleKit anymore and it's pretty much on life support only at this point.

For 3.12, we will keep the old gnome-session and gdm code that uses
ConsoleKit and fork/exec ourselves in the case where you compile without
logind support, but I wouldn't expect it to be around much longer.

Do you have any specific examples of systems not using systemd that you
would like to run GNOME on?

Did you heard about FreeBSD?

How many people use FreeBSD? I doubt its a significant enough number
for us to spend our time and resources on it.

PS. Do you know any OS that _uses_ systemd at all beside Linux?

But apparently its the only free OS worth caring about. I think Jasper
was asking about distros as I'm pretty sure he is well aware that
systemd doesn't run on an archaic OSs, such as FreeBSD.
