Request new package

On a side note, I played around building a package and noticed that only a
sysvinit file is provided. Upstream should develop a systemd service file.
I started working on a minimal one but haven't tested it yet.

Description=Sheepdog distributed storage system



I would consider this bare bones and I'm assuming that sheep doesn't fork
by default (Type=Simple instead of Type=Forking). Also if it needs to be
started after httpd IF httpd is enabled then I think a "Wants=httpd" or
something like that should be added to the Unit section.

I'm not a systemd expert by any means so someone please correct me if I
messed anything up.
