I agree.

I agree.

I haven't found anybody personally volunteering for that. I just have
seen people saying that (other) people should (or will) do that.

So: do we have anyone, someone(s) who are volunteering to fix any bug
with init scripts in any package? Please raise your hands.

btw, somebody should also do something about #832508 ("O: systemd-shim)
I believe.
