Hi Nick,

I don't know how you concluded that opendkim has been infected by
systemd, and that this might result in a breakage. As a matter of
fact, opendkim has no dependency on systemd or systemd-related stuff,
not even indirect ones.

I guess the opendkim package might be shipping a systemd unit file,
but that cannot cause any breakage, since it is just a declarative
initialisation file interpreted by systemd. And there is no way to get
systemd running in Devuan, unless you download it from Debian repos.

There must be something else going on, since there are several reports
of perfectly-working opendkim installations in ascii and beowulf.
