Hi. Our production infrastructure is migrating to runit daemon.
http://smarden.org/runit/
For making program a daemon, I must just write common program and make
symlink from its executable to
/etc/service/my_cool_service/run

All its stdout can be stored in provided path with all features of
logrotating. It is very convenient, especially for
ruby scripts and non-daemonizable programs.

But when I tried to launch erlang server through runit, I've
experienced problems: it just fails after all application load.
Have anybody tried to do it?
