upstart - event-based init daemon - essential binaries

upstart is a replacement for the /sbin/init daemon which handles starting of tasks and services during boot, stopping them during shutdown and supervising them while the system is running.
This package provides all essential upstart components, sufficient for running user sessions managed by upstart.

2017-11-10
  • init/tests/test_job_process.c: Relax assertion about output format of "dd", as it changed recently. Fixes test failure and FTBFS.
  • init/tests/test_job_process.c: Disable "exited with signal" check in "with single-line script that is killed" test, as this is racy: it is possible that a short lived process exits faster than we manage to kill it. This will enable us to un-ignore autopkgtests again.
