@tmb: ping! As you are maintainer I don't want to push this without your


'Twas brillig, and Colin Guthrie at 04/06/12 10:50 did gyre and gimble:
> Hi,

> In the systemd version it runs a file before executing the daemon:

> This script (stolen from fedora) uses the "runuser" command from
> coreutils. While I'm not sure I fully appreciate the difference between

> So if this is OK, it needs to be pushed as an update to Mga2. I'll do
