i recently started using Gentoo, and would like to be using s6/66
in place of OpenRC. However, the s6-related ebuilds are rather
out-of-date (even those in testing, let alone in stable). There's
this PR, created in May last year, to update them:
but the last comment on it is from October last year, and i have
no idea when/if it will get merged.
So what i've done is created an overlay, 'flexibeast-s6':
which updates various s6-related ebuilds to the latest versions,
and which is available via `eselect repository`.
Since i'm new to Gentoo and ebuilds, any feedback on problems with
the ebuilds, or ways in which they could be improved, would be
most welcome. :-)
