Why is the symlink provided? Where is the definition of the
ups-monitor virtual package written down? What is using this symlink?
I assume a good solution should take into account the answers to these
So far I have only found the virtual package name defined, and no
explanation about what packages providing this package name is
expected to implement, nor how it is used. A quick grep in /etc/ for
the name sent me to /etc/init.d/halt.
Is it the only user? If so, perhaps the patch from Kel is the best
way to fix it.
