Linux Lennart Poettering has posted a status update about systemd, an init/upstart alternative. systemd is able now to replace /etc/fstab and cron, and it seems it will be the default init system for Fedora 14. He has also written a post about systemd for administrators.

systemd is awesome

The more I read about systemd the more I like it. I was initially skeptical, but it seems to be coming along very fast (as opposed to, say, PulseAudio ;) ).

I was actually working on my own init system (which had a similar design to systemd), but now I think I'll just go with systemd. It seems a lot more flexible than the system I was working on, and it looks like all the major distros will be using systemd soon.

Then please let him stop developing on systemd, we don't need it that hard and get back to fixing PulseAudio. :-)

PulseAudio is a work project and systemd is more of a spare time project. These are both being developed in parallel and unlike PulseAudio which would probably require ongoing work for new features etc, systemd is reaching closer to a bug fix only mode. Unless you are paying someone to do the work, you can't dictate how they spend their time.
