Is the /etc/conf.d/open-iscsi file still used?

I am planning to do a small rewrite/reorg, to bring some things in line with style guide, and also to make the Section headline organization clearer.

This sentence confuses me: "You only have to include the IP of the target as SERVER in /etc/conf.d/open-iscsi at the client."

I *think* this is a remnant for the old rc-script Version of the package. The file doesn't exist in the current package.

However i'm not completely sure. I downloaded the current version of the open-iscsi from ABS, and it still has a "open-iscsi.conf.d" file. It looks to me like this file isn't used by the PKGBUILD at all, and i can just ignore it and thus delete the above sentence.

I plan to replace it by a short paragraph on how to Automate Target Logins for Future System Statups (as explained in the /usr/share/doc/open-iscsi/README)
