I already wrote (on 19th Oct) Ian and Adam Borowsky a mail with that exact
purpose, got no reply so assume that you were not interested in.. maybe got
tagged as spam? Should have witten directly to this list, sorry :(
Here it is


but please be aware, it's a mess! It's the result of me going throught all
the stable releases and also some rc from master, so there is a lot of code
that is no longer needed (like the 'mount' in inits scripts); also at some
point i start playing with the idea of having two separate packages for
sysv-init scripts and runit-scripts, and the result is a lot of uneeded
complexity in maintscripts. I can't think of nothing essential that is
missing from your build but I let you the final call.
