Description Tom Wijsman (TomWij) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-01-17 16:12:56 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #150190 +++

Upstart is an event-based replacement for the /sbin/init daemon which handles starting of tasks and services during boot, stopping them during shutdown and supervising them while the system is running.

It is being developed for the Ubuntu distribution, however is intended to be suitable for deployment in all Linux distributions as a replacement for the venerable sysvinit package.
