Hi Gaurav,

you may know OpenRC already from your Gentoo machines, it's the service 
management fronted of "sysvinit" that handles the startup/shutdown of services 
in various runlevels incl. dependencies.

What I can say is:
The rc_parallel (so starting services parallel) feature needs some love. There 
are some issues re service dependencies, locking etc.
https://bugs.gentoo.org/391945
https://bugs.gentoo.org/360013
and some more.

We also have some issues with links of init scripts:

There are a lot of other "major" and minor bugs. See 
http://preview.tinyurl.com/openrc-bugs

You can also ask us via IRC if you want (just stay longer, remind the different 
timezones so it may take some time till one replies :P)
