    Remove distribution-specific init-scripts · 708a44d0
    Simon McVittie authored
    LSB-style (SysV-style) init scripts have not historically been
    portable between distributions, as evidenced by the presence of both
    "Red Hat" and "Slackware" init scripts in dbus. Many distributors
    prefer to maintain them downstream, as is done in Debian (and its
    derivatives) and in Slackware, so that the init script can follow
    OS conventions (for example regarding boot messages) and make use
    of OS-provided facilities (for example, the Debian init script uses
    dpkg's start-stop-daemon utility).
    The Slackware and Red Hat init scripts removed by this commit are not
    tested or maintained in practice, and so are likely to have bugs. The
    Slackware init-script provided here is not used on actual Slackware
    systems, which provide a different implementation of rc.messagebus in
    their packaging, while the Red Hat init script has been superseded by
    the systemd unit in current Fedora, CentOS and RHEL versions.
    The Cgywin messagebus-config provided here does appear to be used in
    production in cygwin-ports, but it's full of Cygwin-specifics with which
    the dbus maintainers are not familiar, so it is probably more appropriate
    for it to be tracked downstream as part of the Cygwin packaging.
    The systemd unit is not removed, since it is used on multiple Linux
    distributions with little or no modification, and receives regular
    testing and maintenance; this makes it appropriate to maintain upstream.
