GNU pies-1.2 released [stable]

I am pleased to announce the release of GNU Pies.

GNU Pies (pronounced ``p-yes'') is a Program Invocation and Execution
Supervisor.  This utility manages a set of arbitrary external programs
(``components'').  Upon startup, GNU Pies reads the list of components
from its configuration file, starts them, and remains in the background,
controlling their execution.  When a component terminates, pies tries
to restart it.  Its configuration allows to specify actions other than
simple restart, depending on the exit code of the component.

GNU Pies supports a wide variety of component types.  For example, it can
bind the standard input and output of a component to a network socket,
which makes Pies a replacement for the inetd utility.  Pies implements
powerful access control lists, which are especially useful with such
inetd-style components.

Apart from its native configuration file, GNU Pies can use configuration
files of inetd (inetd.conf) and MeTA1.

GNU Pies gives you complete control over the execution environment of
each component.  This includes modifying shell environment, running
components with the given user privileges, changing resource limits,
etc.  Standard error and/or output of any component may be redirected
either to a disk file or to syslog.

See for more details,
including on-line documentation and examples of configuration files.

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify pies-1.2.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 55D0C732

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.63
  Automake 1.11
  Bison 2.3
  Flex 2.5.35
  Gnulib v0.0-2972-g68145a0
