sysvinit 2.88dsf-59.8git1 source package in Ubuntu


sysvinit (2.88dsf-59.8git1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  Upload current Debian packaging git head. No further Ubuntu changes, so back
  to autosync-able version number.

  * When building for Ubuntu, skip all binaries except for sysvinit-utils.
  * Mark sysvinit-utils as Multi-Arch: foreign, like sysv-rc and initscripts.

sysvinit (2.88dsf-59.8) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Non-maintainer upload.

  [ Benda Xu ]
  * Add openrc to the dependencies of initscripts and sysvinit-core.
    openrc is going to drop Provides: sysv-rc.

  [ Michael Biebl ]
  * Update Vcs-* fields to use the canonical alioth URLs and prefer https://.
  * Drop obsolete Conflicts, Breaks and Replaces from pre-wheezy.
  * Drop Suggests: sash from sysvinit-utils. It is obsolete now that we use
    the sulogin implementation from util-linux.
  * Move Suggests: bootlogd from sysvinit-utils to sysvinit-core. Under
    systemd, bootlogd is non-functional. So only suggest its installation when
    sysvinit-core is the active init system. (Closes: #754443)
  * Document that /etc/default/{rcS,tmpfs} are ignored when systemd is the
    active init system. (Closes: #776963)
  * Drop transitional sysvinit package. It has served its purpose for the
    wheezy → jessie transition and keeping it around for longer only leads to
    confusion as it doesn't setup /etc/inittab which is necessary to boot with
    SysV. This functionality has moved into sysvinit-core, which should be
    used instead in such a case. (Closes: #781766)
