Quoting Russ Allbery (firstname.lastname@example.org): > I think the combination of a Lintian check plus filing wishlist bugs with > patches for each init script where you've tested the modifications is a > good combination. The Lintian check could include a small example of what to do in case this can be generic enough. Of course, doing so *will* lead to maintainers copying/pasting the example to their init scripts so the example has to be generic and functional enough. But I really agree, anyway, that a lintian check is certainly the best way to achieve this. Indeed, this would perfectly qualify as a lenny+1 release goal...:-) Back to the topic: one of the mentioned "initial" bug reports was sent against samba (#488275) with very good interaction with the bug submitter (he proposed a patch, we^WSteve criticized it, and we nearly converged on something we could decide to implement post-lenny).
