Bug Description

Installed it on Trusty and it seems that Nginx logrotate script has a problem:

Specifically this line in /etc/logrotate.d/nginx:
invoke-rc.d nginx rotate >/dev/null 2>&1

invoke-rc.d fails when run interactively:
# invoke-rc.d nginx rotate
initctl: invalid command: rotate
Try `initctl --help' for more information.
invoke-rc.d: initscript nginx, action "rotate" failed.

In nginx package version 1.4.6 from official ubuntu repo this line is different:
[ -s /run/nginx.pid ] && kill -USR1 `cat /run/nginx.pid`
And it works properly.

One solution is to remove the upstart-Script and add the init.d-Script to default runlevels like described in #5 and #7 of https://bugs.launchpad.net/nginx/+bug/1476296.

What are the odds that this simple fix will be included in a further release of this package?
