16 Hi, Gentoo (and hello world),
18 I'm breaking my streak of lurking to comment generally on the Debian
19 procedure here.
21 I'm sure the Debian folks would be happy to strip the symlink from the
22 deb over having to patch OpenRC's rc binary => openrc against the
23 upstream source.
25 Shipping /usr/bin/rc => /usr/bin/openrc would be totally cool for
26 Debian, I believe. Hopefully the OpenRC team will come in and correct me
27 if I'm wrong :)
29 Fondly,
30 Paul
