init-system-helpers 1.57 source package in Ubuntu


init-system-helpers (1.57) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Dmitry Bogatov ]
  * Document that `service` does not check /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d.
    It is an administrator interface, so it is meant to be able to start
    disabled services. (Closes: #656081)

init: metapackage ensuring an init system is installed

 This package is a metapackage which allows you to select from the available
 init systems 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.
