Welcome to the upstart wiki, this wiki is intended as a resource for the upstart developer and user community collecting both specifications and user-contributed documentation.
Upstart on Other Distributions
Plans may be useless, but planning can be very useful indeed. Any major changes to upstart first need to be written down in the form of a specification, and discussed until a consensus or decision is reached. This process allows us to get all our thoughts in order and figure out any problems before we actually implement them.
This wiki also collects user-contributed documentation for upstart. Feel free to create a page, and ensure that it's linked to CategoryDoc for it to appear in the list below.
