Hi. I suspect Debian would be able to get some press coverage if we
announce the new dependency based boot sequencing stuff with a press
release to journalists. The announcement to developers is available
but it is probably not useful for journalists.
Here are some ideas to attract attention from the press:
- This change made Debian the second Linux distribution using the
Linux Software Base style dependencies to order the boot sequence
(Suse was first).
- The change allow for some long term problems with the boot
ordering to be fixed for good.
- The change allow for faster boot by running the boot scripts in
parallel, thus using all the cores on a multicore CPU. :)
- The change enforce correct boot order as long as the provided
dependency information is correct, making the boot system more
Interested in writing a press release for this? I could help draft a
text on the wiki.
