What you need to do after following the instructions.txt in that repo is copy the sv/ and service/ directories to where you want them to be, for example under etc/.

To change the init, you can do that by adding the init=/sbin/runit-init parameter to the GRUB config, specifically the list of parameters that are given to the kernel.

The init could also be set by changing the /sbin/init symlink to point to runit-init.
