Package: shibboleth-sp2-utils
Version: 2.6.0+dfsg1-3+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainers,

I installed libapache2-mod-shib2 and its dependencies (among them 
shibboleth-sp2-utils) and shibd was running after the package finished 
installing. However, after a reboot, shibd is not started because the 
systemd service unit for shibd is disabled. If I remember correctly, 
this behaviour is different from previous versions of this package where 
the init script was enabled upon installation.

I would expect the shibd service to be enabled to start at boot during
