# skeleton upstart script for Go daemons. you should save this in /etc/init with
# the name of your program .conf (for example, mydaemon.conf). It assumes you've
# installed to /usr/local/bin, but that is changeable. Also, note that if your
# program has any underscores in the name, they should be danged to hyphens in
# this filename. For example, if the program was my_daemon, this should be named
# my-daemon.conf.
