Looks like development of sysv-init did continue afterall, latest version is 2.95

Alad, most users should move to init-openrc rather than openrc-init, so it's not required, but still works fine and is optional.

Would be nice if nobody wanted it anymore, since the upstream project seems stale/dead.

No longer required with openrc-init (as of 0.25)?
