    In antiX sid libsane and cups can be upgraded:

    cups/unstable 2.2.10-5 amd64 [upgradable from: 2.2.10-4.0nosystemd1]
    libsane/unstable 1.0.27-3.2 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.0.27-3.1.0nosystemd1]

    The new versions are in the debian repo only. No dependencies to systemd/libsystemd0 are indicated.
    What are the reasons for the nosystemd versions?
    Are the upgrades safe or should I keep them on hold?

    Recently, elogind in Debian sid had this change: libelogind0 is ABI compatible with libsystemd0

    Which basically means that if elogind is installed, cups can be installed without dragging in libsystemd0.

    Great for me since I won’t have to build so many nosystemd debs anymore.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    I just recently upgraded and elogind removed libsystemd0.
