[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: accountsservice
Version: 0.6.45-2

The accountsservice package is evidently used by various greeters to supply
per-user information like, for instance, per-user background images. It
appears to only install system units, not a proper init script.

Thanks for this. However, as discussed on #devuan-dev, the accountsservice
daemon is started by DBus activation. That seems to be working fine in my
testing, so I don't think the package requires an initscript.

Do feel free to reopen if you think I have missed something and this requires
reconsideration.

Thanks.

Mark
