Hello Ole,

I worked on the SIGTERM propagation feature today. I have questions, the questions are also in the code in the form of comments, if you prefer to read them there (search for "Question"):

Inside sub wait_and_exit, job->kill(TERM") is called twice. As I am trying to update the documentation, I find this complex to explain.
Do you know why the call is made twice?
Should I write my own "wait_and_exit" for the SIGTERM propagation feature?

I have added a [--wait-for-children [GRACE_PERIOD]] option for the user to extend the grace period of $sleepsum in case the user is dealing with processes that are long to "put to rest". My question: should this option be available in general, or just for the propagation feature?

Still in the wait_and_exit subroutine, the grace period is "ANDed" with the family_pids[0].
Why just the 0'th element? Why not the entire array?

My other questions are about how to integrate my test with the existing suite of tests and how to run them all.

I welcome comments, suggestions, feedback, etc..

Thanks in advance,
