Package: dh-systemd,debhelper
Severity: wishlist

Hello dh-systemd maintainers and debhelper maintainers,

with the adoption of systemd as default init system for quite a while now,
it does not make sense that we have to Build-Depend on dh-systemd and use
dh --with systemd to be able to properly manage systemd units.

Please work together to find a way to merge dh-systemd into the standard
features of debhelper (likely in dh_installinit) and IMHO try to use this
opportunity to avoid usage of deb-systemd-helper which is doing work that
systemctl should be doing directly... the new merged autoscript can
directly handle update-rc.d and systemctl calls as appropriate.

Thank you!
