Note: posting in the right mailing list now. Oops!

I hope it is the right place to discuss about this issue. I noticed
there is a lot of OpenRC related packages on AUR. I don't want to
start a flamewar, I just want to know what is going on with these

A quick search gave me 42 answers - some not related to this init
system - 95% of them last updated between 2015 and 2018.


Is there any interest of keeping these PKGBUILDs? There is an official
Archlinux + OpenRC init system called Artix, providing a migration
guide from Arch or Manjaro.

It is also listed in

"Artix Linux *2016, previously Arch-OpenRC"


By the way, it is written in the wiki that : "Warning: Arch Linux only
has official support for systemd. When using OpenRC, please mention so
in support requests."

Source: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/OpenRC

Is there any explanations for keeping them?

Thanks for your answers.
