Proposed release goal for lenny: Switch to dependency based boot system

The release team requested email about proposed release goals for
Lenny.  Here is one.  I propose to switch to a dependency based SysV
boot system for Lenny, using the LSB headers in the init.d scripts to
decide the boot sequence.  It is currently possible to convert
existing installations to do this.  There are problems with bugs in
the headers and missing headers, but base and desktop installs are
working fairly well at the moment.  There are bugs in the halt/reboot
sequence, but not very serious ones.  I hope to have this fixed soon.

See my slides from the talk I gave during debconf at
with video recordings show show up on

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
