  s6- is out.

  This release is happening a lot earlier than I intended, but I made a
mistake: I released s6-linux-init- (a bugfix version) and it
depends on the new feature of s6- So, in order to keep the
latest versions in sync, I have to release s6- now.

  The new feature is the addition of the -d option to s6-sudod, to
allow a server to "detach" from the client and not die if the client

  This is important for s6-linux-init because the shutdown procedure is
handled by the runleveld service, which is really a s6-rc invocation
behind s6-sudod, and if the shutdown procedure is triggered from a
xterm that gets killed, without a detaching feature this kills the
s6-rc process and stops the shutdown. The new -d option is meant to
prevent this, and is used in s6-linux-init-

  s6- also comes with a batch of various documentation fixes
and clarifications requested by several users, who deserve all the
praise for actually helping me improve the doc. :)


  Bug-reports welcome.
