Improved jail startup/shutdown script

Jailrc is an improved startup/shutdown script for FreeBSD jails.

It contains the following changes to the original /etc/rc.d/jail script

  • parameters support you can specify any parameters supported by jail8
  • ZFS support you can deletate ZFS datasets to jails
  • jails are not identified by a file in /var/spool/jail anymore
  • two new commands “create” and “remove” to manage persistent jails

Please refer to the README file for more information.
