init: pid of running process should be provided to side-along processes
Binary package hint: upstart
This is a feature request. I would like to have access to the pid after starting a long running script that does not daemonize. If the pid was put into the env, that would be great.
Here's an example of what I'm doing now in order to get the pid, which is not so much fun:
# lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 9.10
# apt-cache policy upstart
