Add debian/NEWS entry for kbd init removal

parent 81531862
kbd (2.0.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium
The kbd init script is no longer supported. If configuration in
/etc/kbd/config and /etc/kbd/remap is unmodified there will be an
attempt to automatically clean up those files as well as the
/etc/init.d/kbd init script on upgrades, if not THEY ARE LEFT IN PLACE
and considered owned by the local admin.
Most people probably use console-setup to configure their console, but
this is not a requirement on Debian. We prefer always having something
arond that configures the console which is why we don't
unconditionally drop the above files.
You can use the following command to check if you have console-setup
installed: dpkg-query -s console-setup
If it says " not installed..." you might want to start using
console-setup by installing it: apt-get install console-setup
Unless you know you want to keep using the obsolete init script and
maintain it yourself you're recommended to make sure they are removed
using the following commands:
rm -f /etc/init.d/kbd /etc/kbd/config /etc/kbd/remap && rmdir /etc/kbd
update-rc.d -f kbd remove
