Summary

This long-term goal of "upstart" is to act as a replacement for _nearly_ all job control services (e.g. init, inetd, cron, anacron, at). This specification proposes how the inetd/xinetd replacement functionality will work.

Rationale

This will permit jobs (aka services) to be run in response to incoming internet connections to various well-know ports (standard inetd /etc/services).
