Re: Paper on init scripts and Debian (debconf2)

- After woody, I intend to break up sysvinit into probably three

probably called 'sysvinit-bin', one containing the basic initscripts
(/etc/init.d/checkroot.sh etc), probably called 'initscripts-base',
and one containing the startup-policy (/etc/init.d/rc etc) for which
I don't have a proper name (sysvinit-boot ?). That last one could
be replaced with file-rc, or any other scheme.
This is good to hear. I've been tinkering with sysvinit to get it to run
on freebsd-i386. The C code needs few changes, but I need a lot more
invasive changes in the /etc/init.d scripts, and I think it might be
easier to just make a separate set.
In the new scheme, would it be acceptable to replace the
'initscripts-base' with another package?
