Hi kfreebsd porters, I've just uploaded upstart 0.6.2-1 to the archive. The first major new release in Debian since almost two years. During the bootpermance sprint in London, we discussed the possibility of making upstart our default /sbin/init for Debian. One of the prerequisites we identified, was to maintain proper support for kfreebsd. An idea was, to provide a small helper utility for sysvinit, that allows to execute native upstart jobs, even when running under sysvinit. We will implement such a tool, which we called upstart-job, most likely anyway, but it can't provide the full feature set that upstart provides. So ideally we want to see upstart ported to kfreebsd. The upstream sources are keept at , my Debian packaging is at . Scott assured to support this by merging any necessary patches if it's cleanly possible. Otherwise the port should best be maintained in a separate branch, where it can easily be merged and synced with master. If you are interested, please help us to get this done. If you have (technical) questions, please ask.
