I'm looking for some documentation/tutorial on how to create good init.d scripts for different services in Debian.
This article is nice introduction: http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/28 but I'm looking for more details.
Thanks!

Not very detailed but the debian policy manual has a section on what a "good" init script should contain. debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-opersys.html#s-sysvinit – topdog Sep 5 '12 at 8:24
    
@topdog this is nice, can you move you comment to an answer, so I could accept it ? – Wojtek Sep 5 '12 at 9:46
