Sounds like Upstart is the candidate to me... it is Init-compatible but still support its own format too, AFAICS. It will perhaps be superseded by InitKit, but whatever.


I have been in touch with Scott Remnant, and this is fortunately not true.

InitKit is a project to create a standard for event-based activation. The idea is that even if a bunch of distros NIH and implement themselves, upstream can count on certain behaviors. No actual software is planned to emerge from the project.

So, one less concern.
