Bug#475430: backup_initramfs not documented on update-initramfs.conf.5.gz



Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/man/man5/update-initramfs.conf.5.gz

       The configuration file allows to disable the update action from update-
       initramfs.

Actually it does more...

    GENERAL VARIABLES
        update_initramfs
              Default is yes for running the latest initramfs-tools  hooks  in
              the  newest  Linux  image.   Setting it to all updates any known
              initramfs.  It is possible to set it to no for remote servers or
              boxes  where conservative manners needs to be applied. This dis-
              ables the update_initramfs -u call.

...like the backup_initramfs which is not documented on this man page.


By the way, today I saw upon apt-get upgrade:
  Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
  update-initramfs: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-3-686 has been altered.
  update-initramfs: Cannot update. Override with -t option.

Maybe emit a big warning:
***
Run "update-initramfs -k all -u -t" or else .... might happen next boot!
***

(Or maybe even make running that the default in update-initramfs.conf ?)
