well, that was an interesting alpine TSC meeting.

the gist of it is that we have concluded that busybox must go, and have committed to beginning to decouple busybox from the distribution, so that it may become an optional component.

this decoupling will begin with two initiatives for 3.17:

- decoupling the init system, based on Laurent Bercot's TSC proposal with modifications

- replacing /bin/sh (at the moment, FreeBSD /bin/sh is the likely contender)


@ariadne TIL there is an init system, I thought alpine was just for containers
