Default openrc-0.8.1 stable candidate

All,

at long last, we have an openrc stable candidate.

This means we need more testers.

We need some people who are still using baselayout-1 to migrate to
baselayout-2 and openrc to make sure that still is successful. Also, we
need developers to upgrade to openrc-0.8.1 and let us know if there are
issues.

Here is my plan, if there are no major issues.

On 5/1, I will commit a news item which I will post later today for
review. It was originally written by fauli, but I have reworded it
slightly.

Assuming that things go well, I will be pushing for stabilization of
baselayout-2 and openrc on 5/8.

This plan will also be posted on
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=295613 very shortly.

If there are any issues with this, let me know.

William

Thanks to all who kept chiseling away at this issue - it's nice to see
that we still can get things done, even if it sometimes takes a week or
hundred more than initially planned.

I hope it all goes well!

From a user who has been following developments since the baselayout 1.13
era, with the bugs filed and ultimately fixed to prove it...

It really feels good to be this close, as for awhile I wondered if there'd
forever be that gap between ~arch and stable. It really did take a number
of people a monumental amount of effort to bridge that gap, and we owe
them a lot of gratitude for it, the more so as we see all that effort
paying off. =:^)

Thanks!

Excellent news, thank you for seeing this through.

I'm happy to report that openrc has been working pretty well for me

Thanks to all of you who worked on this over the years, your efforts are
_really_ appreciated.

Openrc being so central to Gentoo, may I suggest a bigger campaign, on
planet gnome and other outlets?

Cheers,

Rémi

I would be very interested in seeing some kind of list/review of all the
advantages of the new system. Idea for the Newsletter?

We should certainly get a news item together, since this is a huge deal
for Gentoo. Although no doubt non-Gentoo people will start laughing at
yet another "new" init system. =)

If there's a guide around already, or a blog post, or you want to draft
something, let me know and I'd be happy to polish it up.

There's a simple solution for that, we just have to include:

26 Mar 2008; Doug Goldstein <cardoe@gentoo.org>
-openrc-0.2_pre20080326.ebuild, +openrc-0.2.ebuild:
add OpenRC 0.2

25 Mar 2008; Doug Goldstein <cardoe@gentoo.org>
+openrc-0.2_pre20080325.ebuild:
add OpenRC 0.2 pre-release

23 Mar 2008; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org> +metadata.xml,
+openrc-9999.ebuild:
Initial ebuild #212696.

Is that a news item or a newsletter item?

1) It's a couple of years old now.
2) Having used it all that time on some systems, I don't see that many
superficial changes, or for that matter, deviations from the old init
system. I would rather think baselayout-2/openrc simply extends and
improves on baselayout-1.

Openrc is not just a gentoo init system; I know that at least
Alpine Linux [1] also uses it.
