This group has many Python experts, and even more people who can no
doubt help you if you are able to articulate what you need help with.

To help dispel a possible misunderstanding: Don't expect to have a
one-on-one conversation with a single devoted correspondent here. We
prefer to have these discussions in a manner open for contributions from
everyone, to maximise the benefit for future readers and the chance of
correcting errors.

This doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me; it sounds like a
conflation of two separate problems that would be best tackled
separately. Can you re-phrase it, perhaps by describing the problem
you're actually trying to solve?

On the topic of implementing a daemon process in Python, there is the
‘python-daemon’ library <URL:>
which I hope you will find useful. If you can describe what you're
actually trying to do, perhaps it will be clearer whether this library
is a good fit.
