Hi Chris, I don't know the history of why zookeeper and zookeeperd were split into separate packages, but I tend to agree that the separate daemon package isn't strictly needed. Maybe the idea was that a user might want to install the management tools on a system that isn't also a zk server, and that installing zookeeperd is the differentiating factor? Thank you for the bug report. Perhaps we can get some input from other users or developers. I will work on cleaning up the description and the init files in zookeeperd. Cheers, tony
