Package: boinc-client
Version: 6.13.6+dfsg-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

It looks boinc-client initscript is using deprecated
Out-Of-Memmory adjustment api, which for some
reasons on debian kernel is already disabled.
(previously it worked, but printed warning in kernel message

initscript should migrate to new oom adjustment scheme.

Without it, it shows lots of errors in script.

please look at linux kernel Documentation/ dir for informations.
