Re: Paper on init scripts and Debian (debconf2)

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?
