Version: 2.95-4
Severity: wishlist

[A different approach to #912651]

As you decided to drop the example init script from the live dir, could you
please link to appropriate documentation from /etc/init.d/README (aka
/usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/init.d-README).  That file talks about LSB headers
but nothing about how to actually write an init script.

Or alternatively, edit the file to include such a description inline.

I think it would be nice to discuss both the init-d-script approach and the
traditinal skeleton, too.
