Uh, that was essentially my point... :) Clearly upstream support is not an issue that distinguishes openrc from baselayout-1.

And my point was essentially that we should finish doing that, and not bag the whole project because of the OpenRC upstream issues. Sure, we can think about the next great thing that is coming along, but let's not abandon the work done so far, because doing so means living with baselayout-1 for another few more years. I was just being a bit subtle in my argument... Rich
