[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Splitting startpar out of sysvinit-utils - draft in place

We have talked about splitting startpar out of the sysvinit-utils
package to make it easier to maintain.  I finally decided to work a
bit on this.  I've drafted a startpar package in
<URL: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/startpar > which
I believe is ready to go into experimental.  Please check it out and
see if you find any problems.  The exact version when sysvinit-utils
is without startpar is yet to be decided, and when it is the replaces
line in debian/control need to be adjusted.

I've also created a sysvinit branch startpar-split ripping out the
startpar parts from sysvinit-utils.

I suggest we first upload startpar to experimental together with a
test sysvinit package to get it past NEW, and then upload new sysvinit
and startpar packages to unstable when NEW processing is done.  Can
this to-step approach cause some problems?

Happy hacking
