This is the clear and overwhelming consensus of the Debian sysvinit
maintainers.  We have made our decision.

Please do not post any more messages arguing to the contrary to this
bug report.  We will regard such messages as abuse and act accordingly.

If there are people who are still dissatisfied, your appropriate next
step is to raise the matter with the Debian Technical Committee.

FYI Matthew and I are determined to keep this mailing list pleasant
and will not tolerate anything which might be perceived as sniping, as
nasty, or as a gloating digression, nor other kind of messages which
seem to us to be likely to offend, upset or annoy people, or otherwise
disturb the good technical work being done here.


Ian Jackson <ijackson at chiark.greenend.org.uk>   These opinions are my own.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
