I'm trying to run something just before the DNSMasq server starts up and I would have assumed that the place to do so is in the service-event script looking for the start and dnsmasq parameters. However, these parameters are never supplied to the service-event script during the boot process. The only things that service-start script receives during the boot process is:

stop ntpd
start ntpd
restart stubby
restart diskmon

Just to verify the script, if I manually run service stop_dnsmasq and then service start_dnsmasq the script gets called correctly with the start and dnsmasq parameters.

So what would be the correct way to run something just before DNSMasq starts?
