As `systemd` is now the default init system, Arch Linux is receiving minimal
testing on `initscripts` systems. Due to a lack of resources and interest, we
are unlikely to work on fixing `initscripts`-specific bugs, and may close them
We therefore strongly encourage all users to migrate to `systemd` as soon as
possible. See the [`systemd` migration gudie].
To ease the transition, `initscripts` support will remain in the official
repositories for the time being, unless otherwise stated. As of January 2013, we
will start removing `initscripts` support (e.g., `rc` scripts) from individual
packages without further notice.

The number of bugs in the Arch Linux bug tracker is creeping up so it is time
for some extermination.
This is a great way for the community to get involved and help the Arch Linux
team. The process is simple. First look at a bug for your favorite piece of
software in the bug tracker and check if it still occurs. If it does, check the
upstream project for a fix and test it to confirm it works. If there is no fix
available, make sure the bug has been filed in the upstream tracker.
Join us on the #archlinux-bugs IRC channel. We are spread across timezones, so
people should be around all day.
