New experimental sysvinit
(Improved version, sans confusing typo.)
A new version of sysvinit is being prepared for release to experimental.
1. We'll omit /run from this since debate about it continues unabated.
2. One thing I would like to do in this release is to remove the
dynamically created/deleted /etc/nologin file from the root filesystem.
It is proposed that initscripts create and delete the nologin flag file
in /var/lib/initscripts/ and that /etc/nologin become a symbolic link
to /var/lib/initscripts/nologin. Then the administrator then has these
No-login mode at boot until boot complete: DELAYLOGIN=yes
No-login mode never: rm -f /var/lib/initscripts/nologin ; DELAYLOGIN=no
No-login mode always: touch /var/lib/initscripts/nologin ; DELAYLOGIN=no
Anyone see any problems with this scheme? Any better ideas?
