I've started using Fossil for a project of mine, and I wanted to use xinetd
instead of plain inetd. For the record, here's the entry (which I put in its
own file in /etc/xinetd.d/fossil) in the xinetd syntax::

service fossil
    type = UNLISTED
    port = 8081
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    user = root
    wait = no
    cps = 1000
    server = /usr/local/bin/fossil
    server_args = http /opt/srcctl/signpostusa

This captures all the info in the original example, plus the very important
'type' directive (which tripped me up: xinetd expects an entry in
/etc/services unless it sees this type.)
