Two small remarks:

from the debian/asterisk_fix:

-invoke-rc.d asterisk restart || true 
+#invoke-rc.d asterisk restart || true 
+# If asterisk in running, reload it
+# otherwise start it
+if [ -f "/etc/init.d/asterisk" ];then
+       if [ -f /var/run/asterisk/ ];then
+               invoke-rc.d asterisk reload || exit $?
+       else
+               invoke-rc.d asterisk start || exit $?
+       fi

'command || exit $?'  is the same as 'command'. Recall that the script
runs with set -e.

I have added there the '|| true ' after failiure of the postint script
at install tim caused an installation error and some non-configured
packages (that dependend on asterisk).

Also: is there any reason you hardware the content of the postinst
script and don't just put the debhelper stanza?

BTW: one issue with the current init.d script is that a 'restart' will
kill even 'asterisk -R' processes.
