Package: etcd
Version: 2.0.8-2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

The systemd unit file hard codes a working dir and name. It does not have any mechanism for additional configuration. Personally I like the Fedora systemd unit file


Which uses /etc/etcd/etcd.conf as the ENV file.

The sysinit scripts use /etc/default/etcd but the ENV keys in that file are not the ENV keys which etcd pays attention to. But there should be some way, when using systemd to configure it.

I got my instalation to work by just putting the Fedora .service file into /etc/systemd/system, but a reasonable default in /lib seems like a good idea.
