This is what I'm really unsure of, so far. Every time I tried to debate this with someone knowing Debian better than I do, we ended in disagreement. My opinion however is this: maintaining a *unique package* of version controlled init scripts in Devuan is much, much easier than maintaining a sysvinit script in each different package, forking it. I'm not sure about pressing counter-arguments against this. ciao _______________________________________________ Dng mailing list Dng@lists.dyne.org https://mailinglists.dyne.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dng
