Service manager replacement for SysV-init.
GNU Shepherd is an init system used to start, stop and manage daemons. It provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV init (or any other init) with a powerful dependency-based system with a convenient interface. Shepherd may also be used by unprivileged users to manage per-user daemons (e.g., tor, privoxy, mcron, etc.). It is written in Guile and is configured and extended using Guile.
