Default tor-lsb -- hey, look, package script, don't complain to _me_. I'm just installing you.

+1

Airing out our dirty laundry for our users to see is not something that we
should allow or promote. I'm all for reporting errors, but b*tching to
users? No. I'm going to file a bug on this if someone else has not.

It's pretty non-excellent of this package's maintainer, but judging by his
previous actions I am not surprised. He has shown in the past that he has no
qualms with breaking the "be excellent to eachother" rule.

Then a provenpackager should fix it regardless of whether the maintainer "is
too busy to fix it." and even then, they shouldn't be maintaining packages
they are too busy to fix! That's just as bad as blatently refusing to fix
this issue.

FYI, FESCo decided on this particular issue that a provenpackager can fix
tor to comply with our initscripts guidelines for released Fedoras. (As far
as I know, the maintainer already fixed the Rawhide package.)
