Re: Init replacements e.g. upstart

does anyone know if there are any plans to replace init with upstart or
something similar in Debian like Ubuntu has?  The reason I'm asking is
that I've managed to get my wireless working
via /etc/network/interfaces rather than network-manager-gnome.  The
only downside to this is that the dhcp server of my wireless router
sometimes takes ages to assign an ip address, thereby slowing the whole
boot process down.

A simple solution for not slowing the boot process down is adding the
following line to your /etc/network/interfaces:
allow-hotplug eth0 eth1 eth2

For the init system stuff, check planet.debian.org, someone is
blogging there about next-gen init systems (I don't feel like
searching now).
