ACHTUNG

ACHTUNG.

uselessd has entered the final stage of uselessness, its ultimate expression of nihilism - the state of deprecation and utter nonexistence. That's right, goyim shkutzim. uselessd is dead.

The last release was uselessd-8 on November 16, 2014. An effort to revamp the IPC system away from D-Bus into using a byte stream-based fifodir protocol was staged for uselessd-9, but a growing lack of interest and realization that trying to mangle the systemd architecture into something more minimal was becoming increasingly fruitless and unwieldy lead to the project being orphaned. It was transferred to Tarnyko in January 2015, but no activity of any sort has been seen since then. For all practical purposes, it's over.

The author of uselessd has since been drafting plans and reading papers as part of a from-scratch design for a heterodox init system based on design principles from research OS and HPC that are uncommon to the Unix world. It will be released when it's done, which might take a while.

Yeah, I finally decided to edit the wiki and lay out your postmortem.

Re: ACHTUNG

Indeed.


I sometimes wonder if we could have done better outreach to get help w/ development and funding, but it seems unlikely that anyone would seriously step up to the plate beyond minor PR's etc.


If you lose interest, you lose interest.


Also friendly reminder, this is still actively being developed for anyone who wants to port it to their OS of choice: https://github.com/Like-all/tinysystemd
