Enon-virtual-facility-in-initd-script

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The given /etc/init.d script depends on a non-virtual facility that should probably be replaced by a virtual facility. For example, init scripts should depend on the virtual facility $network rather than the facility networking, and the virtual facility $named rather than the specific facility bind9.

Properly using virtual facilities allows multiple implementations of the same facility and accommodates systems where that specific facility may not be enough to provide everything the script expects.
