Description of problem:
In order to add a package like the /etc/net scripts (see URL) to
Fedora Alternatives, it would be useful to split out the networking
components of initscripts, namely
into a separate (sub-)package, say netscripts, that could be readily
replaced by another package, say "etcnet" that provides "netscripts".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I doubt this is really something we'd want to pursue; it's a lot of
packaging and build churn for not much Core benefit.
It might be doable as part of the general initscripts speed-up project discussed
in bug 99540.
Pending that, the interested user could do the hard work of repackaging
initscripts with the desired split and supplying it as a complete drop-in
replacement for initscripts at the etcnet project.
I'm working on /etc/net 0.8.0. As long as it is ready, I will start trying to
pack it for Fedora Extras. I'm afraid I'll have to reopen this bug, hopefully
with a patch ready.
