freedt-23 – reimplementation of Dan Bernstein's daemontools

Description

freedt is a reimplementation of Dan Bernstein's daemontools under the
ISC licence, sharing no code with the original implementation.

It currently includes feature-equivalent replacements for argv0, envdir,
envuidgid, setlock, setuidgid, softlimit, supervise, svc, svok, svscan,
svstat and recordio. It also includes dumblog (a simple multilog
replacement), mkservice (a script for automatically creating service
directories), anonidentd (an anonymizing identd implementation) and
ratelimit (a bandwidth-limiting filter along the lines of recordio). All
the tools include usage messages; for instance, do "ratelimit -h" for a
brief rundown of the options.

Please note that this package is not a drop-in replacement for
daemontools; the internal state files in service directories are
different, and the error messages (and a few of the options) aren't
quite the same.

The recordio script (simple "ratelimit -r" wrapper) was removed
to avoid conflict with net/ucspi-tcp. For the same reason the argv0
was renamed to fargv0.
