  runit, as perp, don't need to be "actively maintained" because they
just work. I don't know how much maintenance effort Gerrit or Wayne are
willing to put into it, but very little is actually necessary.

  If you're looking for a similar alternative that is being actively
developed and enhanced, I can suggest s6 - I intend to keep working on
it for the foreseeable future, and it's currently undergoing a major
packaging overhaul so it will be easier to install and access.
