I agree and that's how upstart works.

I said it's an option, not that it's not possible :) /etc/init/ssh.conf
defines ssh service/job. /etc/init/ssh.override is an override file that
overrides everything from .conf. There is a catch, and that's that
there's no 'norespawn' option.

So, if a package maintainer defined 'respawn' in .conf, you can't really
disable it without removing 'respawn' from job file. On the other hand,
you can override default respawn behavior (ssh service):

echo "respawn limit 1 1" >> /etc/init/ssh.override

That would stop respawning if service fails more than once within the

I'd say that non-existing 'norespawn' option is a bug.

Best regards
