Could all ubuntu trolls/ranters leave the building?
I mean 90% of the emails in this thread are just about ubuntu versus the
world, this whole hate/rage/rant thread won't make the devs enthusiastic
Package upstart, create a forum thread, gather some evidence that it
could be implemented easy in the archlinux and then take it too the
devs. (If they would still be interested after all this 16 year old
behaviour :P )
