Oh yeah, I did not upload it yet, because I wait for a response of the
maintainer. I have finished it though, so you will see a package soon
Neither bsdutils nor sysvinit are absolutely essential, but
I put a lot of work in the latter, so better get it and test it when it is
available, so I can enjoy seeing people using the results of my bloody
nightmare coding nights :)
Oh, a last note: just enter:
dpkg -i --force-install bsdutils_*deb
to force the installation of bsdutils. It doesn't really need sysvinit, as
far as I know.
I will try to put a bit of pressure on the sysvinit maintainer.
