parabola's init ecosystem has been in a state of flux since the
beginning with multiple devs working on it in different directions;
which has made it difficult to avois confusion in the openrc wiki
tutorial - it has been a long time coming; but we seem to be homing in
on a standard procedure/configuration; so this is a good time to get
the documentation nailed down as to remove as much confusion as
possible, once and for all (and that is not to mention the confusion
with the udev and consolekit/elogind options) - i did some experiments
today to try de-tangling the general install procedure for myself which
raised some very obvious questions - i added them to the open
discussion on the bug tracker - anyone with a good knowledge of the
currnt state of openrc support, please do address these questions so we
can make the package/repo naming semantics and the wiki procedure as
clear and robust as possible

see especially, notes 8, 10, 11, 12, 13
