So you implemented your own approach to register configuration files or 
don't you register configuration files at all

when Debian openssh-server package already has this:

[…]:/etc/sv/ssh# find

Looking at the run script it appears more up to date to me (for example 
using /run instead of /var/run).

How will your package work in the case a runit service is already there?
