Re: [tlug] Um, so... systemd?

Odd,  I've source packaged systemd as a second init side by side with

with original init scripts as fallback.

The only issue I had was when I needed to set linear precedence of
scripted operations.
as they usually began running in parallel which meant merging the
scripts into something a bit monstrous.
it was easier to custom write systemd units modified from a template for
me at least.

And all this was my first foray into dealing with init.

I've also been considering to do it again to build a custom stripped
down virtual machine core for a minimal "systemd + python" only setup
just to test a theory I have.

Would anyone find that useful?

This is a bit like kvm instances with rkt. They already have minimal OS setup (stage1) you an run docker container on.[1]
