As the current InfoBox structure kind of reveals, it lumps together two different OpenRC features that are actually quite independent. supervise-daemon can be used with no regard to the init system (as long as OpenRC is part of it, of course), i. e. services that use it will work exactly the same if sysvinit's init is process 1. And OpenRC as the complete init system (i.e. with openrc-init as process 1) only has a slight relationship with supervise-daemon in the sense that it is just an implementation detail of the agetty service (/etc/init.d/agetty). supervise-daemon must be used here because agetty really has to be respawned after it exits, or otherwise the ability to log in again on the tty the terminated process was attached to is lost. But there is no requirement that there be any other services that use supervise-daemon. — GuillermoDH (talk) 23:12, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Good idea. Also, the split parts should be subpages of OpenRC like OpenRC/openrc-init and OpenRC/supervise-daemon.

Created OpenRC sub-pages OpenRC/openrc-init and OpenRC/supervise-daemon, and linked to them from OpenRC and from this page. Suggest to keep this page around for a few weeks and then then can it. — Hfern (talk) 10:19, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
All right, nothing links to this page anymore, so I'll mark it for deletion — GuillermoDH (talk) 22:31, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
