On the today's FESCo meeting we discussed the request to move forward
the conversion of the sysvinit scripts to systemd units in Fedora 17. 

The packages which ship sysvinit script but do not ship systemd unit
according to the Fedora packaging guidelines violate this rule:

Eventual blocking of the packages that violate this Fedora packaging
rule was not yet definitively decided upon, but we agreed that the
Fedora package maintainers should be warned that such blocking might
happen before the Fedora 17 Alpha release.
