Lorenz: thanks for breaking the indeed somewhat scary silence here.
: Gerrit Pape orphaned all his djb-ish packages (daemontools, qmail, ...):
#947694 O: checkpw -- checks password which is stored in ~/Maildir/.password
#947705 O: ucspi-proxy -- Connection proxy for UCSPI tools
. I am still very much interested in proper support for non-systemd init
systems in Debian. However, I cannot commit to any substantial investment of
time in the short term.
Any init-diversity enthousiast planning to visit FOSDEM, feb 1 and 2 in
Brussels? I'll be hanging out at the Debian booth. Would be happy to meet.
