Hi. Our production infrastructure is migrating to runit daemon.
For making program a daemon, I must just write common program and make
symlink from its executable to

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?
