Google Summer of Code/2013/Ideas/OpenRC Improvements
From Gentoo Wiki
OpenRC is the default init system in Gentoo and a viable alternative for various operating system and distribution.
The project aims to make OpenRC an even more compelling and easy to deploy init system.
- Better integrations with non-sysvinit systems such as busybox init and runit.
- Provide migration/importers to compatible init scripts (e.g. systemd units)
- Better integration with network management programs (e.g. connman)
- Improved support for service hotplugging
