Hi guys,

There is a new initscripts release.

Please test and signoff.


Mainly bugfix release


 * rename /sbin/rc to /sbin/rc.d to avoid PATH conflict
 * drop very old deprecated setting of uevent_helper
 * mount /dev/pts and /dev/shm with standard options in case they are
not in fstab


 * use bootlogd to record the output from boot
 * make it possible to symlink /var/{run,lock} to /run/{,lock} (this
is not done automatically)


 * symlink the old /var/run/daemons to /run/daemons (this should not
be necessary but broken rc.d scripts rely on it)
 * reinstate the copying of persistent udev rules from /run to /etc
(this will go away one day due to upstream changes)
