Yes, I'll remove them.

This is more tricky. In itself copy the init.d script is ok. The bad part
is to find the correct timing to call it. I don't want to have
additional boot conflicts. If I place it in rc.local it would be too late
for the first boot, so double rebooting woul be needed, I guess. In all other
cases the dependencies are not easy to solve, and different for each OS-version.

Thinking right now to do it, since I have a fix for autofs that seems to make sense.

How it works with svn. Do I need keys ? Are the uploaded sources transformed automatically into
a .deb ? I've never used alioth.
