the Debian project is revisiting the idea of init diversity and which init implementations should be supported. Right now Debian uses systemd by default with some developers trying to support alternative init implmentations such as SysV and OpenRC. This attempt to maintain multiple packages can cause some conflicts and this is giving rise to a new Debian resolution which will be voted on by the developers. The options available now are: to officially support init diversity, support systemd while trying to encourage support for additional implementations, and focusing on systemd exclusively. This decision is likely to impact not only Debian, but also distributions based on Debian, such as MX Linux which support multiple init options.
