Re: Bug#417118: ntpdate: Start sequence problem for some network setups

My idea for fixing this is to reorder the sysv boot sequence using
dependency information, and allow those with special needs to provide
extra/replacement dependency information in /etc/ to adjust the
sequence for local needs.  I would like to have it implemented for
Etch, and have proposed it as a release goal.

It is mostly independent of the ideas for switching to upstart, as
upstart is mostly useful for the early boot where the kernel events
need to be properly handled by the boot system.  It will only affect a
few packages.  The majority of the 843 packages with init.d scripts do
not need to interact with the kernel, so at least for Lenny we do not
need to rewrite all boot scripts to get better handling of kernel

See <URL:http://wiki.debian.org/LSBInitScripts/DependencyBasedBoot>
for the state of this effort.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
