Here is this week's change to the Fedora Packaging Guidelines:


The systemd guidelines on naming unit files have been amended to tell
packagers how to make compatibility symlinks for alternate service names
should their service have had a different name in the past.



These guidelines (and changes) were approved by the Fedora Packaging
Committee (FPC).

Many thanks to the Fedora Community, and all of the members of the FPC,
for assisting in drafting, refining, and passing these guidelines.

As a reminder: The Fedora Packaging Guidelines are living documents! If
you find something missing, incorrect, or in need of revision, you can
suggest a draft change. The procedure for this is documented here:
