Hi Daniel,

I'm sure many runit users are happy with contributions. I didn't look
at yours in detail because there's limited, close to zero, time free for
me to work on runit improvements. And I actually don't do releases
these days any more. Release 2.1.2 in from 2014, 2.1.1 from 2009.

Code history starts with 2001, git was not born at that time. I used
CVS and later migrated to git, not sure when, shortly after I took over
maintainership of git in Debian I guess.

 git clone

But beware, directory layout, build and release processes are from
around 2001, and might not be as modern as expected ;).

Bets Regards, Gerrit.
