I just read the code, I didn't make an ISO. And the code said that you
replaced getty at .service with what used to be autologin at .service.

This would still work as expected, but for a very weird reason: While
you override getty at .service, autovt at .service is still the same, because
it is symlinked to the /usr/lib version of getty at .service. This is
extremely unintuitive in my opinion.

However, you are right that it wouldn't break behaviour, it's just ugly.

This is about last-minute changes. You commited changes to the
repository without sending them through this mailing list first. This is
not how we should work.
