Package: acpid
Version: 1:2.0.8-3
Severity: normal


in hal 0.5.14-4 (wheezy) I changed it to use D-Bus activation so it is started on
demand. That means there is no longer a hal sysv init script.

As a result:

1.) The Should-Start: hal in the acpid LSB header is no longer useful,
As it is not a fatal error though, you can safely keep it and it's just
a little cruft you are carrying around. I'd definitely drop it for
2.) The postinst tries to restart hal if it find the init script.
I guess with acpid using netlink now this can be dropped completely?
