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][1].

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.
