Hi Folks,

The systemd vs sysvinit topic has popped up again on the Debian list (and a few other places), and it occurs to me to wonder what's going on from a developer perspective (rather than a distro or packager perspective).

Our own systems are pretty stable, so I haven't looked lately, but my sense was that through it all DEVELOPERS were basically ignoring systemd and continuing to ship traditional init scripts in tarballs - followed by, either (or both):

a) things just run, because systemd recognizes traditional init scripts (sort of), and/or,

b) packagers create systemd scripts

Which leads me to wonder the current state of the practice. So two questions to software developers & maintainers (not packagers):

i. What kind of init scripts do you typically include in your code?

ii. To what extent do tooling & libraries support preparing each kind of init script?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Thanks much,

Miles Fidelman
