New Branches at the Bazaar

I wanted to draw everyone's attention to a couple of new development
branches that have been posted.
First up, Johan Kiviniemi's been working on the problem of reacting to
the wildly differing inotify events caused by a text editor being used
on /etc/event.d -- everything from in-place modification, copying to a
backup and moving and deleting takes place.
The "Delayed Watch" branch of libnih, and modifications to upstart to
use it, are here:
I've been working on the complex-event-config specification, which
provides a much richer way of defining the state in which a job should
And also I've started publishing the proposed initscript replacements
for Ubuntu feisty; these should provide a good basis for any
distribution considering a native Upstart boot sequence.
There's a alpha trial Launchpad feature I wanted to draw everyone's
attention to as well; you can see much more detail about a branch
through the new "codebrowse.launchpad.net" URLs. These aren't directly
linked yet, so you need to type them yourself.
1) Change https://code to http://codebrowse
2) Remove /+branch from the URL
Remember, anyone with a Launchpad account can publish their own
branches. It's by far the best way to contribute code to Upstart.
Grab a copy of the libnih and Upstart source onto your machine, and link
them together. Note the use of "bzr branch" here:
$ bzr branch http://www.netsplit.com/bzr/libnih libnih
$ bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~keybuk/upstart/main upstart
$ cd upstart
To publish your changes, make sure you have a Launchpad account and have
registered your SSH key with it. Start here if you don't:
You can then push to a special sftp URL that identifies the branch:
USERNAME is your Launchpad username; PRODUCT is either "upstart" or
"libnih" and BRANCH is a name for the branch. I use "main" for the main
development line, and things such as the name of the specification for
other development branches.
$ bzr push sftp://email@example.com/~keybuk/upstart/complex-event-config
Your branch will automatically appear at both the code.launchpad.net and
Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
