I like simplicite of D.J. Bernstein, and s6 gives me nice tools for each system without complexities, in the D.J. Bernstein way. It is long time ago that I found daemontools, it was most natural. If I remember well it was even packaged in Debian systems. init.d could not just keep everything always running, daemontools could. > > > You're a long-time daemontools user, you say. > > > Why on Earth do you think that Type=forking is > > > right? > > > > Because I don't think, I copied and it works, if > > you did not tell me know, it would remain so for > > years probably.

Of course I have seen that, and I don't mind, it is just my way of handling communication. You know how people come into fights? When explaining about the methods of communication instead of the subject of communication. So I try to avoid speaking of methods, as it does not bring much -- but rather of subjects. > > I don't think really, and I tried the one-shot > > method too, but that was not the problem that I > > was not exiting. > > > > This one I changed > > > > RemainAfterExit=no > > > > and now after systemd "start" it exits. > > > > > Why on Earth do you think that svscan -- any > > > svscan, from daemontools-encore svscan to > > > s6-svscan -- forks and exits parent?

It is related to both, and more to this list I guess, as people here will know more what is it about. There would it be as conflict of interest, just as here, but I guess more there... as a black sheep in white sheep crowd. I like reasoning behind daemontools, and Laurent's reasoning, and that software just works. The daemontools and now s6 supervision is simply running 3 tiny web servers accepting the leads through Nginx, and that is how wealth is created. Jean
