BTS and Lintian

While working on the script to check for LSB compliance, and as a recommendation from Petter Reinholdtsen, I commited two bug reports to the BTS related to a wrong order of some scripts in the sysvinit package. Specifically alsa-utils and udev (Bug reports #375388 and #375389, respectively).

The reason for this, besides correcting the bug itself, is to raise the issue of correct script ordering. Currently, a developer cannot know if their package is correctly placed in the /etc/rc?.d symbolic pools until a bug is reported. If lintian and/or linda included some check for init script dependency information, i.e. basic LSB-compliance, the maintainers would remember to include this information and a script could correct the order for each individual system. The script needs to be developed for debian and this is one of the next steps on the current boot project.
