The only reason why OpenRC has not come up for stabilization by it's
maintainers is the fact that everytime there's a new version readied
for release, on the horizon there's new incompatible changes being
planned for the next version. The OpenRC maintainers in Gentoo have
always chosen to wait until OpenRC settles down a little bit. Now with
the plan to drop support for certain features (ADSL and PPP support in
the networking code), it's going to rewrite more Gentoo people to step
up to develop and maintain this code.

If you're volunteering for this position, Christian, I'll happily step
down and allow you to maintain this. I would also discuss this with
zzam and vapier, the other 2 maintainers of OpenRC.
