Hi, Russ summarized my opinion very well.

Yes, sure.  If there's an init script that's well integrated into the
git packages contributed, I have no problem to apply the patch to the
git-core packages.  As I'm not that motivated, and sometimes also short
on time, to deal with bugs concerning this patch, but prefer to support
the git-daemon-run package, it'd be very nice if the one who contributes
that sysv init integration also takes care of corresponding bug reports
that might be filed.

A separate binary package named git-daemon-sysv or so, that conflicts
and provides git-daemon-run, is the way I'd do the integration.

Thanks, Gerrit.
