[Mageia-dev] Help: Please find me initscripts without LSB headers!

I need to find all initscripts we ship that do not contain LSB header

Ideally you should find them and fix the scripts, but if in doubt ask me!

This is the result of debug work on:

Where overzealous use of priorities from non-LSB compatible scripts has
resulted in ordering cycle deadlocks. We need to nuke these problems.

This can be fixed by providing proper LSB headers in initscripts (likely
easier) or native systemd units (better if you can do it).

Here is a document that tracks all packages we provide which provide
sysvinit scripts. Please can people go through the list and fill in the
blanks. I've started it off. The only cells to free edit are either your
name, or notes about things. The others have data validation  - i.e. a
drop down. I've provided links to subversion which in many cases is
sufficient to verify the initscripts as they are often just included in
the SOURCES folder, not packaged upstream. For some however you will
need to check a bit.


Many thanks!!
