Given that i'm the feature owner for the conversation process and got
stressed enough when (some ) online media starting throwing false
statements ( others more reliable and accurate and bothered to read the
feature page ) that we would have *all* init scripts converted to
systemd unit in F16 to the point I extended my day from 24hours to
36hours trying to meet that goal then finding out that your the one
spreading that false statement comes as a bit of a shock.
An statement closer to the truth is we are at 1/3 - 1/2 converting from
the legacy sysv init script to native systemd units however all live
media and default next next install from the dvd is done which means
desktop installs are covered ( perhaps that's *all* in your eyes )
except those that might contain openvpn ( maintainer did not have time
to look at this ) and wpa_supplicant where Dan has yet not build the
package containing the submitted wpa_supplicant units and we did put a
stop on pursuing it until we hear from Dan ( Not heard if Bill manage to
speak to him about this ) since it came to our attention that unit files
where submitted upstream that deviated from what we had created and Dan
had accepted and as you all know we try to stay as close to upstream as
possible so we kinda need know from Dan what's going on and which files
he want to package and ship.
From the looks of the speed of converting all the legacy sysv init
scripts to native systemd ones is progressing on, it wont be done until
F17/F18 time frame and an complete legacy sysv init backwards
compatibility/support could be scheduled to be removed in F19/F20 if
it's desired I suppose.
For the record there will be no more native systemd unit files
introduced into the release ( F16 ) after we release beta and since we
have started composing test candidates for beta what's in the release (
F16 ) now is pretty much what will be in it during it's whole release
