|0001481: SysV Init Scripts Missing in Debian
|I see in the release notes for 21 that SysV init scripts were removed. Debian supports multiple init systems:
As such, SysV is not obsolete but still supported under Debian. I have Debian and Devuan servers running SysV. So if Debian packages are provided, SysV init scripts should also be provided in the packages.
|No tags attached.
The wiki page state clearly that all others init except systemd are in a non production, non supported state.
>>Since jessie, only systemd is fully supported; sysvinit is mostly supported, but Debian packages are not required to provide sysvinit start scripts. Support >>for init systems other than systemd is significantly improved in Bullseye. runit is also packaged, but has not received the same level of testing and >>support as the others, and is not currently supported as PID 1. As of Bullseye, a collection of sysvinit start scripts that have been removed from their >>original packages is provided in the orphan-sysvinit-scripts package.
We deliver a ready to work installation in the packages, it doesn't force any advanced admin to choose another system and use the published source to adapt to it own needs.
You are free to propose a PR in our code repository, that can package those script without interfering with Debian actual packaging rules.
