  tipidee would be a good one. I plan to release tipidee- very
and have an Alpine package for it early next week, if you want to have
example scripts.

>So, is s6-rc a good candidate for rpm package? I am preparing to build s6-rc package in next few days.

  Having a s6-rc package won't hurt. I'm not sure it would be useful,
because there's no point in having an alternative service manager when
already have systemd, but it's not doing any harm.

  Yes, this will conflict. Anything that's in the utmps package is made
work with a utmps installation, not with a regular glibc utmp
On Fedora, utmp works with glibc as is, so you shouldn't add anything.
