I started out just tweaking the tenses, but then I started feeling
that it should be clearer that the /etc/ample/ample.conf and
/etc/init.d/ample files are already in place (not just in
/usr/share/doc/ample/examples), and that you just need to switch on

    Since 0.5.7-5 ample can write a PID file and run as a daemon for
    unattended use. This is disabled by default, but an init script and
    basic config file are included in the package. To enable daemon mode,
    edit /etc/default/ample.

    This release also adds the option -i, which writes a PID file in the
    given directory - see ample(1).

	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
