Could we please not have another systemd thread on -devel@? The last one
is not even cold yet... Thanks!
Unrelated to that, I would think that any package that modifies
/etc/inittab is buggy: maintainer scripts should not modify
configuration files belonging to other packages (Policy 10.7.4).
Even worse, daemontools-run adds a new entry uncoditionally on upgrade
even when the existing one was removed/commented out by the local admin.
That's a RC bug (Policy 10.7.3: "local changes must be preserved during
a package upgrade")...
