Many thanks for this. However, inn2 is not a forked package and Devuan uses
Debian's packages directly without recompilation. In principle, this issue
should be reported to Debian's BTS to be fixed there. Non-systemd init is still
possible in Debian. You are more likely to get a fix if you can narrow down
the issue in the initscript and/or submit a patch to the Debian maintainer.
