This is correct.  The intent is to remove them eventually.

The replacement for the chassis manager is

The functions of the system manager have gradually been replicated
elsewhere.  For instance its state management functions were
moved to phosphor-state-manager or systemd.  Other functions were
distributed amongst configuration files and other applications.

They have not been removed from the current systems because
they all need to be scrubbed for any remaining usage.

The plan is to scrub the existing systems and eliminate use of these
programs.  This means identifying any functional gaps in the replacements
and implementing those.  I don’t think anyone is working on that at the

Ideally any new layers/platforms being added would just not use
these programs, but I understand if that requires replacement function
that isn’t available and wouldn’t want that to hinder upstreaming
of a new platform.

If I were to begin to work on this, I would start by building images
for the current systems, remove these applications from the image
and see what breaks.
