[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Planning new upstream sysvinit release

I'm planning a new sysvinit release, based on the patches currently in
use in Debian, SuSe and Fedora.  This will make it easier to
coordinate development between these three distributions.

I plan to make the tarball release as part of the pkg-sysvinit alioth
project, and use the version number 2.87dsf (debian suse fedora) for
this first new upstream release.

I have spent the last few days integrating patches from Fedora into
the Debian build, and plan to do similar for the SuSe packages.  When
this is done, I plan to apply all the generic Debian patches and make
a new tarball release.

Any comments, objections, suggestions regarding the patches in the
pkg-sysvinit svn and help with this work is most welcome.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
