Re: Bug#733452: init system daemon readiness protocol

Hello Mr. Jackson,

I was curious: why should SOCK_STREAM be used instead of SOCK_DGRAM in 
your proposed protocol?

Have you seen Lennart Poettering's pastebin of a short daemon side 
implementation of that protocol: http://fpaste.org/64821/32737713/? It 
meets all your desired criteria, it is used in one init system already, 
and it is very extensible. Now that you know that systemd does not 
actually use SOCK_SEQPACKET, but SOCK_DGRAM, do you have any changes in 
opinion of the systemd approach?

Thank you for your time,

Cameron Norman
