Well, openrc isn't any worse than baselayout-1 for upstream support. However, I do agree that we should strongly try to standardize on something that is more cross-platform if possible. I'd rather not push to make openrc stable (which means lots of migration for users), only to then move to something else anyway. Why have two migrations when you can just have one? If Gentoo just wants to own openrc and not use something else long-term, then by all means let's get it done. Rich
