sysvinit - call for testers of 2.88dsf-59.9

If you are running testing (stretch) and using sysvinit, I'd
appreciate it if you could install the new sysvinit packages from
unstable (sid).

This version, 2.88dsf-59.9, is a rather-late update to fix some bugs
which are important for stretch.

In particular, I would like to know whether this sysvinit works with a
fresh sid install with merged-/usr.

The relevant binary packages are these:


The builds for ARCH=amd64 are in sid right now.  The builds for other
arches will be available from the buildds soon, I think.

The changelog, which shows the changes I'm particularly keen to have
tested, is below.

If I get favourable test reports I will ask the Debian release team
for a freeze exception so that these bugs can be fixed in stretch.


sysvinit (2.88dsf-59.9) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Mark sysvinit-utils as Multi-Arch: foreign, like sysv-rc and initscripts.

  [ Michael Biebl ]
  * Demote priority of sysv-rc and initscripts to optional.

  [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
  * Avoid remounting tmpfs, linprocfs and linsysfs on kFreeBSD
    (Closes: #833687).  These file systems are not remountable.  The
    change avoid a warning from mount.  Based on Patch from Jon Boden.

  [ Ian Jackson ]
  * Add myself to Uploaders, as part of adopting the package.
    Closes:#811377 (RFA bug).
  * Add Benda Xu to Uploaders, as requested in #811377.

  [ Ben Hutchings ]
  * Keep /usr mounted read-only on shutdown (Closes: #757083)

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
