-dh_installinit is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
-init scripts into package build directories.
-It also automatically generates the postinst and postrm and prerm commands
-needed to set up the symlinks in /etc/rc*.d/ and to start and stop the init
-If a file named debian/package.init exists, then it is installed into
-etc/init.d/package in the package build directory, with "package" replaced
-by the package name.
-.B debhelper options
-.BR debhelper (1)
-for a list of options common to all debhelper commands.
-.B \-n, \--noscripts
-Do not modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts.
-.B \-r, \--no-restart-on-upgrade
-Do not restart daemon on upgrade.
-.B \-d, \--remove-d
-Remove trailing "d" from the name of the package, and use the result for the
-filename the init script is installed as in etc/init.d/ . This may be useful
-for daemons with names ending in "d". (Note: this takes precedence over
-the --init-script parameter described below.)
-.B \-uparams, \--update-rcd-params=params
-.B \-\- params
-Pass "params" to
-.BR update-rc.d (8)
-If not specified, "defaults" will be passed to
-.BR update-rc.d (8)
-.B \--init-script=scriptname
-Use "scriptname" as for the filename the init script is installed as in
-etc/init.d/ . This is useful if you need to have an init script with a name
-different from the package's name. Note that if you use this parameter,
-dh_installinit will look to see if a file in the debian/ directory exists
-that looks like "scriptname" or "package.scriptname" and if so will install
-it as the init script in preference to the files it normally installs. This
-feature is really only useful if you need a single package to install more
-than one init script.
-.BR debhelper (1)
-for a list of environment variables that affect all debhelper commands.
-Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be called
-between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
-instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
