Just to let you know, base-files 6.2 was uploaded today, with
/run as a new top-level directory.  This is the base-files
version we depend upon in debian/control, so the latest patch
provided should be good to go (initscripts-run-transition9.patch).

It would be great if this could be done soon, so that we can
start transitioning packages to use /run in place of /dev/.xxx
and /dev/shm/.xxx.  This means upstreams can implement the changes
now as other distributions are also doing the same transition.
