You didn't read the comment threads to well, did you? I was referring to
the thread entitled '"BSD-style" init scripts,', started by "Donio". The
comment was made (the truth of which I don't know, as I prefer
contributing where improvements to my code get likewise contributed, thus,
Linux, not BSD) that even most BSDs no longer use "BSD-style" init
scripts, but rather requires/depends type scripts.
I was simply stating that rather than the traditional Sys-V style init
scripts most distribs use, Gentoo also uses requires/depends style init
Just as the Gentoo ports system came from the BSDs, so, I believe, did the
requires/depends, tho I'm not sure of it.
