To all,

Don't make any of this personal. In addition, I hope the inclusion of
systemd in Arch Linux has more justification than just some Arch
developers are also Systemd developers. Arch may not be a democracy, but
it's not supposed to be infested with cronyism either (I don't think it
is). Let's all be calm and collected here and sort things out.
