baselayout is dead, long live OpenRC

Filed under
Gentoo

OK, a few people have been saying that Gentoo is falling apart, they will leave Gentoo too and the world will end as we know it. I can assure you that this is all lies.

Basically baselayout will be split into two entities. Firstly, the bit that lays out the initial file system and provides the core system files shall remain as baselayout. The rest of it (ie, rc, init scripts, etc) will be forked off into a new package called OpenRC (working title). I will be upstream for it and continue developing it, fixing bugs, etc. The difference is that it will be an external project that Gentoo will use.

This benefits me, as the Gentoo users can now rest easy knowing that it will be business as usual in regards to me leaving Gentoo. This also benefits Gentoo.
