And the developer with the most systemd commits in April and May is..

Tom Gundersen, as found here at Systemd Continues Getting Bigger, Almost At 550k Lines Of Code No surprise as he works for Ass Hat now which was probably the RH plan along to recruit the top developer at Arch and why Arch moved to systemd without any resistance from the others. Red Hat are no idiots, well some of them, and if they can recruit top developers from all the big distros then it's difficult to stop the cancer from spreading.

It seems like there are only a few last bastions of sanity left in the Linux world according to this Boycott systemd and someone should get ArchBang OpenRC added to the list smile

The problem is not that you cannot switch init systems it is of course perfectly possible. It's long term support. My own view is that in order to resist systemd someone has for fork arch.That will take time and a lot of effort.

Systemd is meant to be a lot easier than the old initscripts, yet to be convinced.

Debian is experiencing the same fracturing (amongst their communities) that systemd had caused within Arch,
except this is going to be much bigger.

I would guess a lot of them work for, and/or in redhat environments, that's their day job.
Arch is just volunteer work.

There is the problem, due to rolling release, you need an army of package maintainers.
As for qt5, we would have to recompile qt5 without f****** stupid journald, this totally useless binary logging crap.

I want log in plain text, you idiots at military red hat.

Do RH recruit their devs in Redmond at CIA erm Microsoft?

Actuually, IBM, Microsoft, and Google,  were one of the first big Corp's to jump on the NSA spyware-juggernaut, (way back in 2003),
so they do get preferential treatment for their recruits.  -haha wink
...however, this is, coincidentally, about the same time systemd started in it's infancy ?

-crazy thing is, I'm almost believing all this devious/clandestine claptrap ?!.  [skake-my-head] sad
