As far as I understand it, a GR can always overrule a TC decision with a 2:1 majority. The consensus between TC members seems to be that they would like to allow an overruling with a normal majority in this case.

The discussion so far indicated that a GR could be issued and that a simple majority decision could be accepted by the ctte.

Who can summon a GR?

Any Debian Developer can propose a General Resolution; once five other DDs sponsor the resolution (or immediately if the resolution was proposed by the Project Leader or as the result of a collective decision by the Technical Committee), it is considered formally introduced for discussion.

Is there any indicator that there would be GR for this current situation?

Given the generally high tension over the subject of default init systems in the Linux community as seen through LWN articles and comments, and in the Debian community as seen through the filter of the debian mailing list archives, it seems to me almost certain that whatever choice the TC make in this current vote, there are at least six DDs who would be annoyed enough to propose or sponsor a GR in an attempt to overrule the TC.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a GR from every losing camp. Which in and of itself will cause headaches. If you find 6 DDs making a GR to stay with banging rocks together^W^W^Wsysvinit and another 6 who want a GR~on upstart and another 6 who want... you get the picture.

6 DD is the number needed to start the discution for the GR. If there is a vote, there will be several different proposition in the ballot, DD will then rank them, and only one will win. (Debian use a Condorcet voting method to chose wich one will win the election).
