Hi Stevan,

systemd is our default init-System. But we are open for choice. As for 
this we have a Core-Developer-Team which is working on openrc 
integration. We also provide OpenRC-Install-Medias in regular bases. 
Take a look at our forums and search for openrc. We will use it as an 
alternative with Manjaro 0.9-series for sure. Mainfocus right now is to 
release Manjaro 0.8.11. Our tools get ready now.

Hope we get some feedback from you regarding openrc.
