I'm announcing the release of rc-shim v0.3.0, a small script that is useful for adding supervision to existing installations already using SysV-styled rc scripts. The following has changed:
* there is a testing script that ensures the shim will work with your shell. * confirmation that the shim works with several different shells, outlined in the README file. * there is now a "fancy" print variant, that uses colorized printing, etc. that comes with your OS installation. The script is in regular use and I have not had any major defects to be concerned about. There are a few known issues with output, but these defects will not affect the operation of the shim. The quality is now "beta" level and I have decided to continue to make minor improvements; I retract my former statement that I am headed to a maintenance release. Source can be obtained with mercurial or git at https://bitbucket.org/avery_payne/rc-shim. Incremental improvements will continue with each release and feedback is always appreciated.
