reassign 537465 sysvconfig
retitle 537465 sysvconfig should consider dropping the service program (now part of sysvinit-utils)
found 537465 0.81

Actually, it report that sysvconfig and sysvinit-utils conflict with
each other, and this is correct.  The reason is that both packages
provide the service program.

I suspect the wanted way to handle this is for sysvconfig to drop the
service program, as it is now part of the default installation.
Because of this, I reassign this to the sysvconfig package.  The
chkconfig package should do the same, I suspect.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
