Who will do this? Do you volunteer?

And afterwards, who will keep it up to date? SystemD doesn't conform to any
standard or specification. The definition of "systemd APIs GDM requires" is
implementation-defined and can change every day, without notice. When this
creates new problems, who will debug them?
