I often find my buildouts lack elegant subprocess management for tasks such as launching daemons including tracking PIDs if necessary and killing a process given a PID file.
As such, I'd like to write a recipe to meet this need. Such a recipe along with zc.recipe.cmmi for builds and one of the various template recipes will obviate the need for pound, varnish, or other specific recipes. At least it would make specific recipes just a matter of stitching together these other recipes.
Well, yet another fun project to work on if I ever have any free time or if anyone wants to sponsor it.
