If you are the only one person responsible for all rc stuff, then I 
understand that you cannot take each of them. I know you are hard 
working on other FreeBSD parts, so one person is not enough. :(

I directly asked BZ with jail related PR if he can take it or close it 
with some denying comment, but again without reply.
It is not good that there are old PRs without any response. It tends to 
duplicate PRs etc.

As I wrote above, I understand that one person cannot do it all.

There are other persons with similar patches to bring some new features 
in to rc.subr

I tried to start some discussion about that things. I would like to 
learn more about FreeBSD rc stuff, but it is hard if nobody replied to 
my proposals / questions [1] / ideas.

I also sent some proposal of iSCSI initiator rc script [2]. iSCSI 
initiator kernel module and userland binaries are in FreeBSD for a long 
time, but it is "useless" without rc scipt - again, without any response.
I would like to write the script right and finish it to the commitable 
state, but it is hard without support of somebody skilled / without 
comments and discussion.

[1] bgfsck vs. background-fsck

[2] rc script for iSCSI initiator
