The main developer for systemd is very anti-portability and anti-!Linux. He had actively rejected patches that made his projects work on non-Linux systems. In order to port systemd to a non-Linux system, he wants you to first implement every Linux feature that systemd uses. systemd is a non-starter, and not with considering. In theory, devd could be extended to support socket-activation, and the support for that added to RCng, providing the bulk of the systemd features, without having to deal with the systemd devs. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
