init-system-helpers 1.47 source package in Ubuntu


init-system-helpers (1.47) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Christian Hofstaedtler ]
  * Align policy-rc.d existing/nonexisting case for custom actions.
    Previously, when calling invoke-rc.d with a "custom" action, it
    would print an error when a policy-rc.d file was installed, but
    it would be silent if no such file was installed. (Closes: #728682)

  [ Andreas Henriksson ]
  * Do policy-rc.d automatically in init-less chroots.
    See #838966 and #838997 for background.
    A debootstrap with --variant=minbase will have lsb-base installed,
    so the person running into this issue must have:
     - not added a policy-rc.d in his init-less chroot
     - removed lsb-base manually (and what else?)
    This patch auto-detects the situation with init-less chroot that's
    missing a policy-rc.d and deals with it automatically (plus gives
    a warning message). (Closes: #843761)

  [ Ondřej Nový ]
  * Add try-restart action.
    See #851688

  [ Felipe Sateler ]
  * Make init depend on a new enough init-system-helpers.
    In jessie, update-rc.d/invoke-rc.d/service are shipped by sysv-rc.
    They got moved to init-system-helpers after that, so make sure we
    have the new versions to ensure the scripts are available.
    This dependency can probably be dropped after stretch is released.
  * update-rc.d: allow trailing whitespace in LSB header delimiters.
    It is a hard to diagnose condition because trailing spaces are
    invisible in most editors. Moreover, all the other parsers (systemd,
    insserv) allow such trailing space. (Closes: #851730)
