Package: initscripts
Version: 2.93-8
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

/etc/rc.local is currently installed from a static heredoc in
initscripts.postinst. This isn't very clean, and also old systems don't
benefit from new file versions on upgrades, and nothing handles its
removal on uninstall.

Please consider making /etc/rc.local a conffile instead.
