Default Bug#619785: Please move logsave to sysvinit-utils

Package: sysvinit-utils
Severity: wishlist

badblocks is also linked against libext2fs.

Debian supports (or rather will probably support) three init systems:

* systemd does not use logsave to save the fsck log if /var/log is not
mounted yet, but instead "just pipes the stdout of fsck to syslog
which ends up in dmesg if syslog is not yet running" (thanks to
whoever explained this in #systemd).

* sysvinit and upstart depend on the package initscripts, which depends
on sysvinit-utils.

logsave does not use any libraries except libc. Provided that Ted Ts'o
agrees, please consider moving logsave to sysvinit-utils.


P.S.: There is already a bug about essentialness filed against
e2fsprogs: #474540
