I've just done this (also added manager-side support for
JoinsNamespaceOf= and RequiresMountsFor=, while at it). However, this
turned out to be insufficient for my usecase.
I have to start two transient services, say, A.service and B.service,
- B.service "needs" A.service
(i. e. B.service Requires=A.service and After=A.service)
- A.service must be stopped as soon as B.service exits
(i. e. A.service BindsTo=B.service)
And there is a contradiction: I can't make a dependency on an
If I create A.service before B.service, I can't set BindsTo=, and if I
create B.service before A.service, I can't set Requires= and After=.
Locally, I've solved this by allowing inverse dependencies to be set
over the bus. That is, I make B.service BoundBy=A.service. Is this
acceptable for upstream?
