System-V-like init utilities - transitional package

This package depends on init, which is an essential package that pulls in the default init system. Starting with jessie, this will be systemd on Linux. It facilitates a smooth transition and provides a fallback SysV init binary which can be used to boot the system via the init=/lib/sysvinit/init kernel command line parameter in case the system fails to start after the switch to systemd.

If your system successfully boots with systemd or if you have chosen to stick with sysvinit-core, this package can be removed safely.
