init-system-helpers 1.28ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


init-system-helpers (1.28ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - init: Drop sysvinit-core as alternative pre-depends, and add
      upstart-sysv instead.
    - scripts/invoke-rc.d: clean eatmydata from environment unless
      INVOKE_RCD_ALLOW_EATMYDATA is set to value other than '0'. This does not
      affect systemd, thus this can be dropped after 16.04 LTS. (LP: #1257036)
    - invoke-rc.d: Fix actions to run under systemd if there is no init.d
      script but only an upstart job. Packages got fixed in 16.04 but this
      still affects upgrades. This can be dropped after 16.04 LTS.
   * Drop running-in-container. Remaining users have been moved to
     systemd-detect-virt. (LP: #1539016)
   * Drop invoke-rc.d's calling of 'initctl reload-configuration' to work
     reliably on systems with broken inotify. We don't have live systems under
     upstart any more, and on Ubuntu touch this does not apply.

init-system-helpers (1.28) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * invoke-rc.d: Fix actions to run under systemd if there is no init.d
    script. (Closes: #747851)
  * invoke-rc.d: Don't start systemd units which are disabled. Restart them
    only if they were already running (i. e. started manually by the admin).
    (Closes: #768450)
  * update-rc.d: Support /usr/lib/insserv/insserv location too, as with
    newer sysvinit versions.
  * Add autopkgtest which runs the tests in t/.
  * Drop Michael Stapelberg and Tollef Fog Heen from Uploaders:, they stopped
    systemd work long ago. Thanks for your great work in the past!
  * Run wrap-and-sort -at over our debian control files.

  [ Andreas Henriksson ]
  * Add support for -X option. (Closes: #760168)

  [ Michael Biebl ]
  * invoke-rc.d: Allow stop and status requests for masked systemd services.
    (Closes: #717109)

init-system-helpers (1.27) unstable; urgency=high

  Urgency high to not further delay the sysvinit migration to testing, and to
  avoid this going into testing with breaking file-rc.

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Add debian/clean to remove script/*1.p. (Closes: #812586)
  * Version the conflict to file-rc, 0.8.17 now works fine with the moved
    update-rc.d and invoke-rc.d.

dh-systemd: debhelper add-on to handle systemd unit files

 dh-systemd provides a debhelper sequence addon named 'systemd' and the
 dh_systemd_enable/dh_systemd_start commands.
 The dh_systemd_enable command adds the appropriate code to the postinst, prerm
 and postrm maint scripts to properly enable/disable systemd service files.
 The dh_systemd_start command deals with start/stop/restart on upgrades for
 systemd-only service files.

init: System-V-like init utilities - metapackage

 This package is an essential metapackage which allows you to select from
 the available init systems in Ubuntu (systemd, upstart) while
 ensuring that one of these is available on the system at all times.

init-system-helpers: helper tools for all init systems

 This package contains helper tools that are necessary for switching between
 the various init systems that Debian contains (e. g. sysvinit or
 systemd). An example is deb-systemd-helper, a script that enables systemd unit
 files without depending on a running systemd.
 It also includes the "service", "invoke-rc.d", and "update-rc.d" scripts which
 provide an abstraction for enabling, disabling, starting, and stopping
 services for all supported Debian init systems as specified by the policy.
 While this package is maintained by pkg-systemd-maintainers, it is NOT
 specific to systemd at all. Maintainers of other init systems are welcome to
 include their helpers in this package.
