ITP: runit-init -- a UNIX init scheme with service supervision
This essentially is a reintroduction of the package "runit-run", which
was added to Debian end of 2002, and removed on request of the release
team end of 2010, with the package name changed. Since then, a backward
compatibility feature for running sysv rc scripts was added, ideally to
be replaced by runit service directories eventually.
Description: a UNIX init scheme with service supervision
runit is a replacement for SysV-init and other init schemes. It runs on
Debian GNU/Linux, *BSD, MacOSX, and Solaris, and may be easily adapted
to other Unix operating systems. runit implements a simple three-stage
concept. Stage 1 performs the system's one-time initialization tasks.
Stage 2 starts the system's uptime services (via the runsvdir program).
Stage 3 handles the tasks necessary to shutdown and halt or reboot.
See http://smarden.org/runit/ for more information.
This package replaces the /sbin/init program and configures runit to run
as process no 1 after the next reboot.
