Hi all,

recently I compiled util-vserver with a very useful patch by
Alexanders which make its work with systemd hosts.


I'd hoped that I could somehow get this merged with util-vserver, in
order that I have a good working environment for Debian Stretch as a
stock install. There are other advantages too of having util-vserver
working with systemd. I'd like this to be merged upstream, but the
river has run dry. I can't seem to get in touch with Daniel Hozac, the
maintainer of the util-vserver. He's posted nothing on the mailing
list since 10th March 2016 and no new vserver tar ball has been
produced since 24th March 2016. Apparently he's been active in the IRC
channel since June.

It appears to me that the project - or the util-vserver Linux-Vserver
sub-project is possibly abandoned by the maintainer, and that we
should look at moving it forward a little somehow.

I'd also like to build some util-vserver versions with AlexanderS
patches applied. I don't want to cause any upset with this, so I'm
wondering if anyone has any idea what I should do. Rename the packages
I compile with the patches? util-vserver-as-* for example. Just change
the version numbers to something appropriate?

I've not been in this situation before so any guidance would be helpful.
