Early login wasnt enabled by default so not many users would see that.
If you can contribute towards fixing the problems in early login, that
might help.  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=151952

Lets get it working reasonably well and include it in extras-devel as a
package that users can provide feedback easily. Replacing a init system
is not a easy decision and boot speed shouldnt be the primary motivation
to do that.

extras-devel is the equivalent of rawhide for Fedora Extras. It can very
well be used to test new technologies. The problem with importing it
into rawhide is that the external community cannot work directly work on
packaging anymore at this point.
