Yeah, I'm not sure how best to handle this either, but I'd suspect most
of the NFS related servers would be bound together by a target of some
sort (nfs-server.target?) I've not looked but that would be my guess as
to how it would work. Then each of the required parts of an nfs-server
can have .wants links shipped in the package (e.g.

Of course if these sub-components are optional pats of an "nfs server",
then they shouldn't have symlinks shipped in the package. The ones we
want to "enable by default" should be enabled in a %post script when the
package is installed *for the first time* and by a %triggerun of the
version that they were removed to handle upgrades (see systemd package
for example of this).

As these sub components should all have their install section with:

All you should need to do to migrate sysvinit to systemd is to look for
the enabled sysvinit scripts and enable the nfs-server.target (the
target unit itself should contain an install section that means it's

But I've not really looked at the Fedora units or our nfs package since
these updates so take the above as a general comment only :)
