Package: syncthing
Version: 0.14.0+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The syncthing package installs the systemd user unit in path


However, according to "man systemd.unit", systemd does not check that directory
for user unit files; the correct one is


That causes the command

systemctl --user enable syncthing.service

 to fail with the following message:

Failed to enable unit: No such file or directory

Thanks for packaging syncthing!
