Is there a link to this?  Where is it?  I have my own project that makes
ActiveMQ into a more proper Debian package.  I was thinking of trying to
merge it into ActiveMQ and was researching this.

Which one?  The basic bin/activemq?

start-stop-daemon is the official debian way.  I’m not an expert on it but
it seem pretty straight forward and provides more debian handlers to the
daemon process.

 There’s also the migration to systemd which is inevitable and a gun
pointed at everyone’s head..

Would there be any interest in me contributing an activemq-debian submodule
that takes the tar.gz and turns it in to a .deb?

I can just take my code and make it into a pull request and the community
can work with it moving forward to hopefully provide support for
ubuntu/debian but also/eventually systemd
