Who is Gregory Smith? Who is he quoting in the message as saying it's been cancelled?

Snagged a gmail address, ended up with a Youtube and G+ account.

Given the content i don't think i would take any of his claims at face value.

BTW, the email seems to have been cross-posted between LKML and a couple of debian lists.

I also wouldn't take at face value any of Poettering's claims that systemd-shim can accommodate sysvinit for awhile, either. Especially not after his (Poettering's) flaming gambit against Torvalds lst week and saying that "open source is 'sick', kernel community 'awful'"!!

Search for Gregory Smith on LKML. The guy's obviously just a troll.

First 'truth': 2+ 2 = 4

Second 'truth': 3 + 1 = 4

Yes, 2 'truths' can be true.
