Hi Andrew,
what you can do is to fetch systemd units for services that interest you from
Whonix and diff them against the current versions in Debian unstable.

If there's a difference and the Debian package with updated systemd unit continues
to work fine in your tests, submit it as a patch to the Debian BTS or a merge request
for Salsa/Gitlab for the respective packages so that the maintainer can evaluate them.
