Subject [DAEMON] New release of daemon?
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2010 16:25:32 GMT

We'd really like for the daemon executable to forward the -javaagent command
line arg to the java command. One of my colleagues actually patched
arguments.c in order to support this. Much to our surprise, when we went to
check the code in svn, it already included a similar fix. 
The commit that applied the fix is from july of 2006. We also found an issue
relating to this (, which is
from march of that same year. And apparently the latest version of
commons-daemon, 1.0.1, was released in 2005.

That's a long time ago.

I understand that if something basically works to everyone's satisfaction
and isn't too buggy, there's no need to do releases all the time. But in
this case, support for -javaagent and other 1.5 features has been requested
a few times, and the code to make it happen has been languishing in trunk
for almost 4 years, waiting to be released. It seems like there's reason
enough for a new (point) release.

So here's my question: is there any chance of a new release of daemon being
baked? I'm willing to help out in any way I can to make it happen. We've
used jsvc in our product from day 1, and we'd be glad to invest some time to
move commons-daemon along.
