Esystemd-service-in-odd-location

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

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/.

Please refer to Bug#992465, Bug#987989, https://salsa.debian.org/debian/debhelper/-/commit/d70caa69c64b124e3611c967cfab93aef48346d8, and https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2021/08/msg00275.html for details.
