  All right. Then, as Guillaume says, you cannot use /run/service as your
scandir, because everything under /run will be wiped at boot time. You
should pick a permanent place, such as (for instance)
and make it your scandir.
  All the packages that have services they want s6 to manage will need to
create their own service directories, and symlink them into the scandir.
