Well this looks familiar.

Before you read further, including to my next message, get yourself a
copy of nosh and read the manual pages therein for service-manager(1)
and system-control(1), paying particular attention in the latter to the
section entitled "Service bundles".

Then grab the nosh Guide and read the new interfaces chapter. On a
Debian system this would be:

     xdg-open /usr/local/share/doc/nosh/new-interfaces.html

Have you done those? Good. That saves me writing it all out again. (-:
