There is a certain level of compatibility between daemontools and
runit, and I presume the same exists for s6. The devil is in the detils.
The |service-manager| manual page from version 1.37 or later of the nosh
toolset contains a full breakdown of the control/status API in a
|supervise/| directory, including the daemontools-encore extensions and
the nosh service-manager's own extensions. I am hoping to get version
1.37 released within the next week. In the meantime, I have pushed the
new manual page to the on-line copy of the /nosh Guide/
<http://jdebp.info./Softwares/nosh/>. You can find the HTML-form manual
page for |service-manager| hyperlinked from several pages in the
/Guide/, including the _new Interfaces_ page.
