  I already asked, and will ask again: please try it again. Since the
last time you tried, there has been in particular:
  - the Christmas 2014 update, which has simplified installation a lot;
the goal was precisely to make the software more accessible.
  - which I asked you to
give me your opinion about but you never replied.

  The first part of ,
"Process supervision / Concept", is more than 300 words, probably
about 500 or 600, but it's more verbose than it needs to be, and
I think it answers your question pretty well. The rest of the
section is s6-specific, but if you remove the s6- prefixes from the
command names, it can apply to daemontools as well.
