Hi, here are some of the things that had been worked
 + The LSB-compliance list has been kept updated
 + A patch to test LSB-compliance with Lintian has been sent
to the maintainers. See bug report #377740.
 + The different hotspots have been tried together to test
their effectiveness. To implement this, a script was created
to try different combinations. The first hotspots tried
were: Use dash, Use networking in background, use hwclock in
background, reorder with insserv. The time reduction for
this was the same as just using dash, that is, 4 seconds.
This may be due to the weird order obtained by using insserv
which required some manual changes.
+ Tried again to put the network in the background but still
I can't obtain any time improvement. The reason may be that
ifup -a takes just a second in the computer (according to
time ifup -a). On the other hand, bootchart marks that the
process last 7 seconds.

This sunday night the Deliverable 3 will be available for
