Nice! I'd like to see runit as an alternative init system in Debian, but there're hurdles, such as sysvinit backward compatibility I actually don't want to see in runit. > The only question I have left is for Gerrit Pape and that is if Runit > is still under any level of development upstream even if maintenance > only, and are there any outstanding issues still in need of attention. I'm around and actively using runit on many machines. We have some known minor bugs since years, but there's currently nothing that really needs to be fixed or changed. That said, I think about further developing runit every here and then. The still existing interest in this project actually feels motivating. Regards, Gerrit.
