there is no debate. people saw Roy moving on and got scared. as i said
originally, it makes no difference to us. we're moving to openrc and it will
continue to be our default init system for the foreseeable future and the
support channel is unchanged: go to bugs.gentoo.org.
as for people who want to move to the latest shiny init, as i also said
before, nothing is stopping them from getting it working today. we've had
alternative init systems in the past that drop-in replace baselayout/openrc
and there will continue to be ones in the future.
however, until someone actually does the work to get one of the alternatives
in the tree and actually working with other packages, there is no debate to be
had as to the default init package.
i'd also highlight that openrc focuses on one thing: it exists to boot the
system and manage daemons via init scripts. it does not do all of the
extended things that systemd is taking over (inetd, crond, udevd, etc...).
