runit 2.1.1

A cross-platform Unix init scheme with service supervision
runit is a cross-platform Unix init scheme with service supervision; a replacement for sysvinit and other init schemes.

runit project runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, snf Solaris, and can easily be adapted to other Unix operating systems. runit implements a simple three-stage concept. Stage 1 performs the system's one-time initialization tasks.

Stage 2 starts the system's uptime services (via the runsvdir program). Stage 3 handles the tasks ecessary to shutdown and halt or reboot.
