Interface of `shutdown', 'halt', ... programs
Recently I asked for inclusion of 'runit-init' into init metapackage
Pre-Depends: (#838480). Response, in particular mentioned, that
since 'runit-init' does not provide 'halt', 'reboot' and other
scripts, it would break things.
Unfortunately, I did not received reply about following questions:
- what exactly would break and what should I test? It is not clear for me,
since I am fine without these scripts, running runit-init_2.1.2-8.
- what exactly interface is expected from these scripts? For example,
shutdown program is rather complex, involving timespecs, access control
and tons of command line options, and, if I need to reimplement it (sigh),
I would prefer to do as little, as possible.
It was quite misleadingly mentioned on #838480 about sysvinit-like
system. Runit is not, and while it support /etc/init.d/ scripts as
good, as sysvinit, they are still fallback method of managing
