Once package and shipped your package should no longer have to depend on xinetd

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

I have just accidentally raised a dup of this bug, number 876106, before finding this report.  I've made some suggestions in my bug report that might be useful, for convenience I'll past the entire text below.....

Fedora could really do with a more easily configurable rsync when used in daemon mode.  I've recently been setting up Fedora mirrors and using the Fedora guidance, the following seems to be a decent set of options to include

As a default /etc/rsyncd.conf (many options from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/Mirroring) :

uid = nobody
gid = nobody
use chroot = yes
max connections = 8
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
exclude = lost+found/
transfer logging = yes
timeout = 900
ignore nonreadable = yes
dont compress   = *.gz *.tgz *.zip *.z *.Z *.rpm *.deb *.bz2
refuse options = checksum

As a default systemd.service file (Debian did something similar for systemd last year, see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=639632) :

Description=A program for synchronizing files over a network
After=syslog.target network.target

ExecStart=/usr/bin/rsync --daemon --no-detach "$OPTIONS"


Finally, the environment configuration file /etc/sysconfig/rsyncd :

Hi Graham,

systemd files are prepared and will be included after resolving some minor build issues.


Comment 8 Michal Luscon 2012-12-03 11:32:20 UTC
This bug is now resolved in Fedora rawhide. Please test it and provide your feedback. Any ideas for improvement are highly welcome.


Comment 9 Graham White 2012-12-03 14:21:16 UTC
Looks good.  However, a couple of comments...

Do you not need the EnvironmentFile line in /usr/lib/systemd/system/rsyncd.service ???  Otherwise it wont pick up any user options added to /etc/sysconfig/rsyncd.

There's a typo on line 5 of /etc/rsyncd.conf:

# configuration examlple:

Where is the packed I can not find it in fedora 18?

yum provides */rsyncd.service
No Matches found
