So "maintaining" initscript would me actually adjusting/fixing them as
needed or just putting a package there?  Because there has been repeated
calls for actually contributors towards initscripts without any
response.  And if you are not going to do actual development of
initscripts, I will have to object on the basis that the software is
unmaintained upstream.
