How come there is two init scripts to deal with the hardware clock at boot up?

First, please do not CC me on mailing lists, as per request in my

It is early enough.

It appears to be. In Debian sarge, hwclock is started at S50, while
hwclockfirst is also started at S18. In Debian sid, it appears to be
at S18/S22 now too. See #342887.

Anyway, the changelog only mentions

    * Really move back to S18 where it belongs.
      Put at S22.  See #50572.

Typical example of a bad changelog entry, IMHO.

Sorry for not checking this earlier. I was on a plane when answering
the post and had not 'Net access.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
