Package: lintian
Version: 2.104.0
Severity: normal

The package-supports-alternative-init-but-no-init.d-script check has
this text at the end:
N:   Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 9.11 (Alternate init systems)
N:   for details.

However, section 9.11 reads "This section has been deleted." in the
Policy. So at minimum that needs to be fixed :)

Furthermore, the check tests for the absence of an init.d script, and
specifically says: "[...] must provide init.d script for starting that
services with sysvinit". My understanding is that this is not a "must"
anymore, and thus this check needs to either go away, or its language
changed to be more like "would be nice to ship as sysvinit if you can".

(Practically speaking, I maintain a package that ships a systemd unit
file, but does not ship an init.d file, and it'd be extra hard to do so.
I've added a lintian override, but I question the accuracy and value of
this check more broadly.)

This seems fixed; the changelog was missing a Closes, so doing this
manually. Thanks everyone!
