Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.87b.1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

I created a patch to ask a debconf question (medium priority) if
update-initramfs should update all initramfs or not. The idea is that
other packages (like my uswsusp package) should check this question too.

This way we can make both the people that want to keep old initramfses
around and the people that want an up-to-date initramfs for several
versions happy at the same time.
