where did i say "fix a random bug in 5 minutes"?

this postfix-update was before F16 release
there were more postfix updates in the timeframe

* writing the systemd-unit takes 2 minutes for postfix
* no need for package anything, install put it locally in /etc/systemd/system
* so testing takes another 3 minutes, no compile needed

and now explain me what a maintainer knowing that the change to systemd was
done with F15 is thinking by ship  the package with F16 again as sysv-service
while users partly converted 20 different services in /ect/systemd/system/

hallelujha, in F17 postfix has a systemd-unit
read the changelog who is responsible for this and compare
the name with the tread-starter, take a deep breath and
think about how fursutrated it must be for him running
behinfd maintainers from one release to the next
