Package: orphan-sysvinit-scripts
Version: 0.07
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

rsyslog 8.2110.0-4 was backported to bullseye-backports a couple months
ago. This version no longer contains the SysV init script, which was
removed in 8.2110.0-2.

Anyone still running sysvinit on bullseye-backports would likely be
caught off guard and left with a non-functioning syslog after an upgrade.

Would it be possible to backport orphan-sysvinit-scripts 0.08 (or later)
to bullseye-backport to cover such a situation?
