Oh, good, I have nothing against that. Although you do need to patch it to support systemd as (x)inetd is no longer supported by Debian (or pretty much any other Linux distro). I'm pretty sure that Gophernicus supports systemd's inetd emulation so my guess is that only the systemd service config file needs to be created. Also logging might need to be changed because syslog no longer exists in modern Linux and I have no idea if systemd has syslog(). Oh, and logrotate and logcheck configs needs to be removed because there is no logrotate anymore and I'm quite certain logcheck doesn't support systemd logs. You get my point....
