|Description||OpenRC is a dependency based init system that works with the system provided init program, normally /sbin/init.|
|Parent Project||Gentoo Base System|
OpenRC is a dependency based init system that works with the system provided init program, normally /sbin/init. It is not a replacement for /sbin/init. OpenRC is 100% compatible with Gentoo init scripts, which means you can probably find one for the daemons you want to start in the Gentoo Portage Tree. OpenRC, however, is not exclusively used by Gentoo Linux, so our goal is to be platform-agnostic.
The Gentoo OpenRC Project is open to all contributions. If you would like to get involved in the project, feel free to join us on #openrc or even #gentoo-base. We're also reachable via firstname.lastname@example.org. However, all bug reports should go through Bugzilla rather than e-mail. Please file bugs under the "Gentoo Hosted Projects" product and the "openrc" component.
You can also find the source code in the OpenRC git tree .
