Having the good-old sysvinit setup still working in a satisfactory manner is nice while preparing Jessie: that's what Wheezy has and therefore has to be supported to upgrade to Jessie (think partial upgrades, full-upgrade-not-rebooted-yet, etc etc). When testing crazy stuff with systemd, I know I can always fallback to sysvinit if I broke any .socket or .service unit I'm working on. It will be slower and feel old, but would most certainly boot and provide me with comfortable ways to debug. If that was changed to OpenRC, we'd exchange the sysvinit safety net that all got to know in exchange for a brand new safety net that we don't really know yet. Moving to OpenRC as the secondary init for Jessie looks like changing the two wheels of a bike at the same time. I'd widely prefer to keep sysvinit (as old it might feel) for Jessie, especially as transition point from Wheezy and have these discussions again after Jessie is released. That shouldn't stop you from providing the best OpenRC integration in Debian, be it for the ports or in preparation for jessie+1. Cheers, OdyX
