Today I proposed my initscriptsNG (initscripts with dependencies between services) to LSB. I exchanged some ideas with
Richard Gooch but it seems that we have very different ideas of what a boot system should be (he wants something that is easy/clean for people that maintain the system using vi; while I aim for compatibility and transparency for newbies). So I sent the proposal to LSB, since some persons there seem to want the same things as me.
Anyway, what I want is to provoke a decision. Whatever boot system "wins" (Gooch, Clausen, mine), I will be happy to work to improve it.
