Subject: [DNG] GNU Shepherd user services

Hello everyone

I came across recently on GNU Shepherd user services:

`The GNU Daemon Shepherd or GNU Shepherd, formerly known as GNU dmd, is a
service manager that looks after the herd of system services. It provides a
replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV-init (or any other
init) with a both powerful and beautiful dependency-based system with a
convenient interface.` [1]

As an initial introduction, I took a look, among other things, at the pages at
the links that I report below.

Also to help me better understand what it is (my knowledge of service-managing
is at user level, and therefore not very thorough), I would be interested in
reading your comments and considerations.

Thanks in advance
Best regards
