systemd-service-in-odd-location

The package ships a systemd service file in a location outside /usr/lib/systemd/system/

Systemd in Debian looks for unit files in /usr/lib/systemd/system/. /lib/systemd/system/ and /etc/systemd/system, but the first location is now standard in Debian.

System administrators have the possibility to override service files (or in newer systemd versions, parts of them) by placing files in /etc/systemd/system. The canonical location for service files in Debian is /usr/lib/systemd/system/.
