As far as I can tell, at the moment it has a sysvinit + OpenRC setup,
plus an s6 supervision tree anchored to process #1. Unlike other
distributions, the getty processes are part of the supervision tree,
and placed there by an Adélie-specific OpenRC service in the sysinit

I believe Adélie is heading towards supporting that.

Really? As far as I can tell, Void's s6-rc is the unmodified upstream
package, and Void's 66 is the unmodified package from Obarun's

Yeah, that's both /usr-merge and bin-sbin merge. A whole discussion in itself.
