Bug#385887: ITP: daemonize -- run a command as a Unix daemon

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stanley Jaddoe <stanley@sigterm.demon.nl>

* Package name    : daemonize
  Version         : 1.5
  Upstream Author : Brian M. Clapper <bmc@clapper.org>
* URL             : http://www.clapper.org/software/daemonize/

  Description     : run a command as a Unix daemon

Most programs that are designed to be run as daemons do that work for
themselves. However, you?ll occasionally run across one that does not. When you
must run a daemon program that does not properly make itself into a true Unix
daemon, you can use daemonize to force it to run as a true daemon.
