Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the file-rc package.

The package description is:
 This package provides an alternative mechanism to boot the system, to
 shut it down and to change runlevels.  The /etc/rc?.d/* links will be
 converted into one single configuration file /etc/runlevel.conf
 instead, which is easier to administrate than symlinks, and is also
 more flexible.
 The package will automatically convert your existing symlinks into
 the file method on installation, and convert the file back into
 symlinks on removal. Both mechanisms are compatible through
 /etc/init.d/rc, /etc/init.d/rcS, /usr/sbin/update-rc.d, and
 /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d scripts.

At the moment this package requires some action because it is required
to implement insserv functionality here, see Bug#539591.
At the moment I personally won't find the time to dig deep enough into
insserv to code this.

So I request for an adopter of this package.
