Description Bill Nottingham 2013-09-19 10:59:28 EDT
Description of problem:

systemd already has 'system' and 'global' scope for enable/disable of units.

It can be useful to enable/disable/mask a unit for this boot only. Adding a --single or --temporary scope to these commands, which is implemented by doing the enable/disable/mask in /run/systemd/system, would allow for administrators or developers to temporarily disable, enable, or mask services, while allowing the next reboot of the system to be normal without any changes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

F19 version

There's "--runtime" already. Is it what you want?

manpage diff

Yes, in fact. Here's a diff to the man page to add references where --global, --system, etc. are mentioned.

Thanks. Patch applied upstream in http://cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd/systemd/commit/?id=1bee43d. Will be in next release of systemd.
