init-system-helpers 1.29ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


init-system-helpers (1.29ubuntu1) 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.

init-system-helpers (1.29) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Michael Biebl ]
  * Bump debhelper compatibility level to 9.

  [ Raphael Geissert ]
  * invoke-rc.d: Fix behaviour when no start or stop symlink is found.
    Although update-rc.d(8) says that it is a common administration error to
    delete a start symlink instead of renaming it to make it a stop symlink,
    the default behaviour of invoke-rc.d in that case is not sensible, and
    leads to the init script being executed. (Closes: #546532)

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * invoke-rc.d: Fix package installation failure when installing a package
    with an upstart script and systemd unit, but no SysV script in a chroot.
    (LP: #1543051)

  [ Felipe Sateler ]
  * update-rc.d: Ensure insserv doesn't fail if initscripts is not installed
    (Closes: #806438)

  [ Benda Xu ]
  * script/invoke-rc.d: Add OpenRC support.
  * script/update-rc.d: Add OpenRC support.

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-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.
