In Alpine Linux it is common practice in order to start a service
automatically at boot time you do the following:

  sudo rc-update add yourservice

On a per-user basis I experimented with coupling it with the login
process. But there is a trade-off. It is then decoupled from service
management which has the advantage to calculate and manage service
dependencies. The service manager OpenRC can help for example in
complex scenarios like restarting all gnunet system services, which
automatically triggers restarting all gnunet user services in order. So
I decided for the latter.
