I thought the last big discussion resulted in agreement that chkconfig
and service should continue to work for all services. Is that not the
It should be. Yea it's wonderful that Open Source lets stuff get
re-invented, but RHL, Fedora, RHEL, etc. has been synonymous with
chkconfig for about a billion years now and you can't just throw that
away without bothering a few people. You can throw it away, but you
shouldn't do that in F-14, even if it means compatibility code, like the
kind Microsoft probably hated writing as they killed off AUTOEXEC.BAT :)
