hey debian system initialization people--

I was wondering if any of y'all will be coming to debconf 10 this summer
in NYC.  I think it would be interesting and useful to have a
talk/roundtable/panel/debate at debconf about the state of the various
initscript projects in debian, to see what the projects can offer each
other, and to help other DDs understand the choices and options
available.  i think i've got initscripts-ng (insserv), sysvinit,
upstart, and runit covered in this e-mail -- who else have i missed?

Even if it's not a full group discussion, i'd be interested in talks
from anyone who knows any of these projects in detail wants to explain
the state and plans for their project within debian.

hope y'all are well, and hoping to see many of you at debconf,
