Debugging the LSB check in lintian/linda.

With run-time dependencies in the init scripts (as LSB headers) we can verify the correct boot order of the system. Currently, lintian just checks the init scripts to provide start, stop, restart and force-reload actions. A small modification could allow it to check for LSB compliance as well and decrease the big amount of scripts lacking run-time dependencies until now.
Currently we have a script to verify LSB compliance and is on a debugging phase. One of the issues is when to warn about a missing information on the stop phase, like Required-Stop, Should-Stop and Default-Stop. Changes we made were not to warn (at least for Default-Stop) when the system default start is only runtime S (initialization).

Finally, there are now some way to track the bugs related to this project with BTS usertags. Most of them have been submitted by Petter Reinholdtsen. Follow this link to see the bugs.
