>One last question: do we need the s6-openrc rpm package? I know systemd is more popular for Redhat and Fedora. Any suggestion?

  I doubt anyone is going to run openrc on Fedora. If you're going to
s6 for a given distribution, you should integrate it properly with that
distribution, not copy what is done on other distributions. To that end,
you should forget about openrc, and probably assume systemd is running.

  That means:

- removing all the other files than the sources.
- making a suitable unit file to start s6-svscan.
- taking advantage of the fact that systemd, unlike openrc, has a
mechanism, so you don't need to set up a catch-all logger for the
supervision tree - on the contrary, you can just let all the logs fall
through to stderr.

  I would help you do all that, except I have no experience with rpm
(except from 20 years ago, that is).
