Re: Bug#676817: systemd and dovecot
I would be very grateful if you could have a look. Andreas Barth has
basically repeated the point I made in the third paragraph of my
original post. Nothing you have said is really reassuring me. You talk
about how a package needs something to make socket activation to work
and sd-daemon.h is a way to do that. Well that file is available in
libsystemd-daemon-dev, and the current package as a dependency on
systemd rather than libsystemd-daemon-dev. It might be right but it does
not feel right.
