Bug#1039369: sitesummary: ships sysv-init script without systemd unit

Package: sitesummary
Severity: important
User: bluca@debian.org
Usertags: missing-systemd-service

Dear Maintainer(s),

sitesummary has been flagged by Lintian as shipping a sysv-init
script without a corresponding systemd unit file. The default init
system in Debian is systemd, and so far this worked because a
transitional sysv-init-to-unit generator was shipped by systemd. This
is in the process of being deprecated and will be removed by the time
Trixie ships, so the remaining packages that ship init scripts
without systemd units will stop working.

There are various advantages to using native units, for example the
legacy generator cannot tell the different between a oneshot service
and a long running daemon. Also, sanboxing and security features
become available for services. For more information, consult the
systemd documentation:

You can find the Lintian warning here:


In case this is a false positive, please add a Lintian override to
silence it and then close this bug.
