Systemd Gets A Stable Release Repository, Backports
Motivated in part by Debian switching to systemd and then Ubuntu switching to systemd, the systemd developers have now setup a stable repository for the widely-used init system for carrying back-ports to existing stable releases and sharing stable patches amongst package maintainers.
A new systemd repository has been setup on FreeDesktop.org that is a Git repository containing backports to selected versions of systemd. The goal of this work is to share the work between distributions that are stabilizing on these particular versions. At the moment in this repository is just a branch for systemd v208.
Those interested in more details on this new systemd backports initiative can find additional details via the mailing list announcement, the new Git repository, and the new Backports Wiki page.
