If you read me, first thing I ask is a place to ask : not a developers
mailing list, because it would be OT on such list. Not here because it
is not debian specific.

For what I need to know : I have a headless machine with an encrypted disk.
I cannot ask the password on console, so
1) at boot I do not mount the encrypted disk, and start a minimal set of daemons, among them the ssh daemon.

2) I ssh to the machine then mount encrypted disk and start remaining daemons.

How can I do this with systemd ?

Note that I use policy-rc.d to check whether the encrypted disk is
mounted for the daemons that need it (it allows not to change the init

As for "read the man". man -k systemd gives me 145 different man
page : when you do not know the architecture, where do you begin ?

For beginner in systemd (but fluent in sysV init scripts) how to
learn ? You get a bunch of unordered data, which does not help at all.

How do targets work ? I did not find. What is the format of a unit
file. No "ini-like" is NOT an answer, since it lacks a link to the
exact definition of ini, and explanation of the "like".

etc, etc.
