Dependency based boot sequencing release goal completed

The release goal to prepare all init.d scripts for a dependency based
init.d script system can now be considered complete. 99.8% of all
packages in unstable now have the dependency information (2 packages missing it), and a similar amount in Lenny contain the dependency header.

Here is a new status update following the last report in
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2008/03/msg00011.html

The release goal to prepare all init.d scripts for a dependency based
init.d script system can now be considered complete. 99.8% of all
packages in unstable now have the dependency information (2 packages
missing it), and a similar amount in Lenny contain the dependency
header. I am not sure how to calculate the fraction in Lenny.

The initial testing of these dependencies have discovered some bugs in
the headers, leading to incorrect boot or shutdown sequence, refusal
to activate dependency based boot sequencing or rejecting a package
installation. Most of these bugs are fixed, but some remain open in
BTS. More testers are needed to discover problems with currently
untested combination of packages. Please tag all such BTS issues
appropriately to get them to show up on

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?usertag=initscripts-ng-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org

At the moment, 1% of the debian population got insserv installed. More
testing is needed, to detect the remaining dependency errors.

The insserv package in unstable and testing is doing well, and a large
test suite has been written to verify that it is working correctly
before upload. This have made us confident that it is working very
well.

Happy hacking,
