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.
Personally I think the profusion of tiny packages is not all that nice.
It would be better to solve that problem (that the administrator should
be able to choose whether to run the daemon) with a debconf question.
I would agree with Kurt's comments about the separation between
Currently, git-daemon is in git-core. I don't think a debconf prompt for
every installer of git-core would be a good idea. Most people are only
going to be interested in the client.
As a sysadmin I'd prefer a git-core/git-remote-access-methods split
where the former contains all "client" stuff and the latter may post a
debconf question which services to run and which daemonizer to use.
But I'm just a single sysadmin and programmer.
