Dmitry, FYI you did not send your message to the bug.  NNNN-submitter
does not get the message properly archived in the bug log.  I guess
this was an oversight.  I think with things as they stand now your
message should have gone to:

 To: 746442-submitter at,
     746442 at
 Cc: debian-init-diversity at

or some such.

In the future, when the Maintainer field has been updated, the CC to
d-i-d will not be needed.  I guess with Benda's message we are ready
for an upload to sid which will fix this ?


Ian Jackson <ijackson at>   These opinions are my own.

If I emailed you from an address or, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
