  Then maybe you should ask Debian instead, "why aren't you packaging

  It's literally a distribution's *job* to package software that may
be useful to users. And instead, you are bending your mind to try
and find justifications for users not to use some software, for the
simple reason that it's not packaged by a distribution. That logic
is 100% backwards.

  You want to help users? Package s6-rc for Debian. Also, call out
Debian on their prejudice and disingenuous use of policies that
prevent people from making correct execline and s6 packages.
