Not too bad, it seem.
Just to chip in my view on this, as one of the sysvinit package
maintainers. I believe dropping shutdown symlinks in runlevel 0 and 6
for scripts that only kill the daemon is a good idea, and have
recommended on several occations when I submitted BTS reports about
dependency based boot sequencing.
As far as I am concerned, the boot/shutdown system in Debian do not
need stop symlinks to kill daemons, as init.d/sendsigs do the same job
quicker and better, and thus consider all packages doing it to be
wasting resources. I would recommend severity normal, as this issue
is just wasting resources, not breaking functionality.
It would be great if we could speed up shutdown a bit more. :)
