Ubuntu 9.10 is pushing pretty heavily toward upstart for service management across the board.
my thoughts it should be a blocker for .8 as ubuntu pushes stuff into upstart... chef will need to know how to start/stop/status upstart which also queries the regular init system i believe...
upstart does not currently support enable/disable – https://bugs.launchpad.net/upstart/+bug/94065
mostly done. fidgeting with the enable/disable hack. Something is wrong I apparently can't see without sleep.
Then need specs.
enable/disable works now, although we need fileedits permissions fixed in CHEF-843.
still need specs.
Yay, all done!
Thanks for this, BTM! Pushed to opscode/master.
