Hi! The version 0.2.0 of buildroot-s6, a set of Makefiles to generate embedded Linux systems using s6 as init system, is available .
What's new? - update of the s6 stack. - possibility to select "s6 init" as init system in Buildroot configuration menu. - addition of s6-linux-init-skeleton. - fix for system shutdown (courtesy of /etc/rc.tini). Formerly, all the files needed to use s6 as an init system were stored in the "custom" subdirectory. In order to allow the user to select "s6 init" as init system, I added a new package named "s6-linux-init-skeleton", which now provides all the files for a basic setup (inspired by the examples from s6-rc). The "custom" directory now only contains the files for the user custom services (e.g. running `rngd` on the Raspberry Pi). See buildroot/package/s6-linux-init-skeleton/files for details. s6-linux-init-skeleton still needs improvements to be properly integrated into Buildroot (e.g. better network/disk management). buildroot-s6 is a sandbox to play with the s6 stack and see how it could be integrated into the official Buildroot. It is still a work-in-progress. About the branching model: the "stable" version will always be available on the "master" branch, the latest developments will take place on "develop" (thank you, Captain Obvious). About the version scheme: stable version string will always contains even numbers (e.g. 0.2.0), development/intermediate/unstable version string will always contains odd numbers (e.g. 0.3.1). I will shortly release 0.2.2, with an update of the s6 stack. Comments welcomed!  https://github.com/elebihan/buildroot-s6/ -- ELB
