Package: openrc
Version: 0.12.4+20131230-9

Being a heavy Gentoo user, maintainer of many hobby Gentoo ebuilds + one
that's in the portage tree, and being a big fan of OpenRC, I was very
excited to see that OpenRC is available as a Debian package.

In the process of evaluating the package, I noticed that /sbin/runscript
is missing.  This is especially troubling since that is the official[1]
interpreter for Gentoo init scripts, and is what brings all the best
features of OpenRC into each script written.

For reference, I think Gentoo's current openssh init script[2] is a good
example of a typical OpenRC script of medium complexity.
