Package: haproxy
Version: 1.6.2-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  [ Jorge Niedbalski ]
  * debian/haproxy.init:
    + Pass the pidfile to the --pidfile argument instead of the PID
      number, easing backports to pre-systemd versions of Ubuntu
      and Debian (LP: #1477198).

On older Ubuntu versions (pre systemd), the stop action was not working correctly in the init script; this patch resolves that issue.

Thanks for considering the patch.
