Perhaps, but if we want to move in that direction perhaps we should 
consider at least getting openrc stable first.  That doesn't mean making 
it perfect, or feature-complete.  However, right now we have two 
different baselayouts, and if we start talking about systemd then we'll 
have three.  Do we really want to start on seriously supporting a third 
one, without first getting rid of one of the other two?

Alternatively we could dump openrc and move everybody back to 
baselayout-1, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Looking at the tracker bug, I see all of three issues blocking openrc 
from going stable.  One is documentation, one is getting an evms upgrade 
stable on a few minor archs, and one is some kind of mdadm upgrade with 
a few issues.

It seems like we should just make the next bugday "OpenRC Cleanup Day" 
or something like that.  Everybody can take 15 minutes to contribute to 
a wiki on getting started with openrc, or blog about it, or whatever. 
the docs team can glean the best of that and get the docs in order.  The 
evms/mdadm/arch maintainers could make a push to finish up, and others 
can help them with patches.

If we made a real push to get OpenRC stable I'm sure that those bugs 
would get taken care of quickly.  Right now I'm guessing that it just 
isn't on anybody's radar.

Or, is the situation with OpenRC less stable than is apparent in the 
tracker?
