[Pkg-systemd-maintainers] Bug#730604: libvirt-bin: Please rename libvirt-bin.service back to libvirtd.service and use symlink or Alias= instead

Package: libvirt-bin
Version: 1.1.4-1
Severity: normal


Could you please rename back the libvirt-bin.service systemd service
file to libvirtd.service and use a symlink (libvirtd.service ->
libvirt-bin.service) or add Alias=libvirt-bin.service in the service
file instead.

Other upstream project are expecting the service to be called
libvirtd.service and I guess this would be a good idea to not change
this expectation in debian.

There was some discussion about using a symlink vs Alias= on the bug
#719695, maybe a systemd maintainer could tell us the status of this?
