What's the point of arguing any longer? Any systemxy package that has an active maintainer can be part of openSUSE. You can neither force people to maintain a package nor to not do so. You can contribute yourself or pay somebody to maintain it – or you can just wait and see if you are lucky and somebody else does the job.
What Ruediger wrote is true the other way around as well: a much better old system, I'm sure will be supported.
What I can see - and what I don't like at all - is a group of people who are planning to remove System V init from distribution even if it is maintained and even if it works much better than systemd. Moreover, they keep repeating that System V init will go eventually - probably because they believe that if they repeat it enough times, people will accept it as a given fact.
