systemd is now the default init system, Arch Linux is receiving
minimal testing on
initscripts systems. Due to a lack of
resources and interest, we are unlikely to work on fixing
initscripts-specific bugs, and may close them as WONTFIX.
We therefore strongly encourage all users to migrate to
soon as possible. See the
systemd migration guide.
To ease the transition,
initscripts support will remain in the
official repositories for the time being, unless otherwise stated. As of January 2013, we will start removing
initscripts support (e.g.,
rc scripts) from individual packages without further notice.
