This is absolutely not intended to in any way take away from the work
that you have done and I don't expect you to answer, but I have to
admit that I'm a bit worried about OpenRC since one of the main things
it does better still appears to have a rather big and unsolved bug in
the form of , that has been open since late 2011 according to .
And just to make it perfectly clear, I'm not saying that it's an
unsolvable problem, but I do think it's one that needs to be solved
before OpenRC can be imported.
Mind you, I would love to have parallel service start-up - especially
for machines with a lot of jails (for example, for non-dependant
service separation) that are currently started sequencially, so I
think it's fantastic work you've already done, and I definitely
encourage you to work on it.
