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.

Changelog

2016-03-04 - Martin Pitt <martin.pitt@ubuntu.com>
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.

* 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.

* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- init: Drop sysvinit-core as alternative pre-depends, and add

- scripts/invoke-rc.d: clean eatmydata from environment unless

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)
