Re: Removing sysV init files

I feel like removing the sysvinit scripts entirely would be "reverting

people who want to use sysvinit (or upstart, or any other init system)
will have to contribute some support there in the form of bug reports and
patches, just as with any other non-default configuration in Debian.  Your
obligation as maintainer is to "merge reasonable contributions" as
mentioned above.

OK, seems that all agree that the scripts should be kept in the package. So the question then becomes how. As you might have understood I have a bad gut feeling about them.

Given this, would it be OK to put the sysV scripts in a separate subpackage which can be properly commented?
