Hi all!

Has anyone experience with upstart scripts? Mainly in writing new Jobs for Upstart.

    I do not have experience however I have read today that upstart scripts are fully compatible with sysvinit (legacy) startup scripts

    After reviewing http://upstart.ubuntu.com/getting-started.html, it appears that the upstart scripts are slightly modified /bin/sh scripts. It should not be too difficult to create and use them.

    What exactly are you looking to accomplish?
