Whilst this is the current situation for tomcat9 (although not without some
outstanding issues[1]), I would like to encourage you to reconsider this for

Maintaining initscripts in their parent package remains the best
option. Notwithstanding Matthew's considerable efforts, putting them in
orphan-sysvinit-scripts has a number of difficulties that are outlined in the
orphan-sysvinit-scripts source README[2].

Including the supplied script with Andreas' offer of ongoing testing and support
within tomcat10 would

 - provide the smoothest experience users of all init systems
 - be of no detriment to users of the default init system
 - place no additional burden on you as maintainer

Thanks again for your further consideration.
