This script doesn't do anything new compared to our initscript, so
upstream probably won't do much more than document it here:

The simplest form of the script is literally just 2 commands (though
I've implemented it in a slightly more calculated manner):
/bin/systemctl kill --signal=USR2 nginx.service
/bin/systemctl kill --signal=QUIT --kill-who=main nginx.service

Nonetheless, I have offered both our nginx.service file and the above
script to be upstreamed, or at least documented in their wiki:

Thanks for your advice.

Kind regards,
