12 You're right that the orignal purpose of the change has been debunked.
14 So, starting over: one real benefit would be cross-compatibility with
15 systemd. It's one less thing people would need to reconfigure when
16 migrating to/from openrc.
18 And before anyone starts an argument about it, I don't care what your
19 opinion on systemd is. I'm just throwing this out there as an actual
20 benefit of adding support for /etc/hostname to openrc.
