==== Description: ====
The dmd program is a ``Daemon managing Daemons'' (or maybe a
``Daemons-managing Daemon''?), i.e. a service manager, that is written in
Guile, the extension language of the GNU project.  It provides a replacement
for the service-managing capabillities of SysV-init (or any other init) with a
both powerfull and beautiful dependency-based system with a convenient
interface.  It is intended for use on GNU/Hurd, but it is supposed to work on
every POSIX-like system where Guile is available.  In particular, it has been
tested on GNU/Linux.

==== Other Software Required: ====
GNU Guile 2.x (LGPLv3+),

==== Other Comments: ====
The project started its life 10 years ago, was dubbed a GNU package, and was
abandoned after a few alpha release.  We plan to use it in the Guix-based GNU
system and have started making developments at
toward that goal.
