Package: varnish
Version: 3.0.3-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


I've realized that there's a "bug" at the initscript, which It does not
advertise "reload capabilities" at Varnish initscript daemon even though
its implementation is present.

root <at> moirae[~]# /etc/init.d/varnish
[ ok ] Usage: /etc/init.d/varnish {start|stop|restart|force-reload}.

root <at> moirae[~]# /etc/init.d/varnish reload ; echo $?
[ ok ] Reloading HTTP accelerator: varnishd.

I thought It could be related to "preliminary/beta reload
implementation", but the script itself appears to be quite robust, so I
think this might be just advertising it, therefore I'm filing this as a
"wishlist" bug.

The """""""patch""""""" for this is quite trivial, see it attached.

Thanks in advance!
