I'd rather like to suggest of forbidden using of initscript in redhat-lsb
for fedora packages. Despite of the depencencies issue, we can easily switch
from /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions to /lib/lsb/init-functions and historically
/usr/lib/lsb/install_initd and /usr/lib/lsb/remove_initd is completely
broken for several time( See bugzilla). I cann't see any advantages of using
initscript in redhat-lsb instead of initsripts package.
But I'm also like to see splitting redhat-lsb into several subpackages,
it'll benefit a lot to some third-party packages/softwares which require
redhat-lsb. It's unacceptable to pull in some graphic libs for servers when
installing redhat-lsb .
