library for making a Unix daemon process — Python 2

‘daemon’ is a library that assists a Python program to turn itself into a well-behaved Unix daemon process, as specified in PEP 3143.

This library provides a ‘DaemonContext’ class that manages the following important tasks for becoming a daemon process:

 * Detach the process into its own process group.
 * Set process environment appropriate for running inside a chroot.
 * Renounce suid and sgid privileges.
 * Close all open file descriptors.
 * Change the working directory, uid, gid, and umask.
 * Set appropriate signal handlers.
 * Open new file descriptors for stdin, stdout, and stderr.
 * Manage a specified PID lock file.
 * Register cleanup functions for at-exit processing.

This package installs the library for Python 2.
