  Description     : a collection of services for runit supervision suite

 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 contains services directories for a collection of services
 available in Debian, to have them run under runit service supervision
 instead of sysvinit or through init.d scripts.  Amongst other services,
 it includes service directories for apache, cron, dhclient, exim, gdm,
 postfix, squid, ssh.

This is a Debian native package that already existed in the archive in the
past and was removed I believe around 2010.
I intend to use this as a way to made a collection of most popular and requested
services quickly available as native runscripts for runit users.
This is a subpar solution compared to dh-runit, which remains the preferred option
for runscripts, but it could be a good chance to let people experiment with runit.
I'm looking for a sponsor for this package.
