      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      their packaging, while the Red Hat init script has been superseded by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.

      Deprecate the pam_console/pam_foreground flag-file directory · 2aaa6509
      Simon McVittie authored
      
      
      This feature is now compile-time conditional, and off by default.
      
      pam_console appears to have been in Fedora and Gentoo until 2007.
      pam_foreground seems to be specific to Debian and Ubuntu, where it was
      unmaintained since 2008 and removed in 2010. The replacement for both
      was ConsoleKit, which has itself been superseded by systemd-logind and
      ConsoleKit2.
