Package: orphan-sysvinit-scripts
Version: 0.08
Severity: important

On two different setups, I get:

Not replacing deleted config file /etc/init.d/rsyslog
update-rc.d: error: initscript does not exist: /etc/init.d/rsyslog
dpkg: error processing package orphan-sysvinit-scripts (--configure):
 installed orphan-sysvinit-scripts package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

Both happen to be lxc with openrc.  I don't happen to have a bare-metal
openrc install left thus I did not check if the problem is lxc related.

The rsyslog init script hasn't been deleted by me.
