we have distilled a little "official" package description for systemd
based on those from the existing packages of the various
distributions. It would be nice if the various packagers could adopt
this new description for their packages (i.e. debian control files, .spec
files), so that they stay in sync. Thank you.

        "systemd is a system and session manager for Linux, compatible
        with SysV and LSB init scripts. systemd  provides aggressive
        parallelization capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation
        for starting services, offers on-demand starting of daemons,
        keeps track of processes using Linux cgroups, supports
        snapshotting and restoring of the system state, maintains mount
        and automount points and implements an elaborate transactional
        dependency-based service control logic. It can work as a drop-in
        replacement for sysvinit."

Have fun,
