Sorry, Allan, I've read your email few days ago at work, but forgot to
reply. :-/
I think the main problems with initscripts is that many bugs/features
require lots of work and testing in many configurations to be fixed/implemented,
Help from everyone is really appreciated.
Currently I'm testing some changes in the locale configuration area,
which may close 2 reports,
but other than that I cannot say for sure if/when I can take a look at
others, at least until holidays.
