Hi Daniel, I'm sure many runit users are happy with contributions. I didn't look at yours in detail because there's limited, close to zero, time free for me to work on runit improvements. And I actually don't do releases these days any more. Release 2.1.2 in from 2014, 2.1.1 from 2009. > Also: is there a public revision control system for runit?

I'd be happy to supply changes as patches against a > canonical git repo, if there is one. Code history starts with 2001, git was not born at that time. I used CVS and later migrated to git, not sure when, shortly after I took over maintainership of git in Debian I guess. git clone http://smarden.org/git/runit.git/ But beware, directory layout, build and release processes are from around 2001, and might not be as modern as expected ;). Bets Regards, Gerrit.
