aiccu.service - systemd service definition
The attached file is a native systemd file for upcoming F15 Feature 
Please read  on how to installing systemd Service files.
If you have any question dont hesitate to ask them on this bug report.
For optimal performance, please set “daemonize” to “false” in shipped default aiccu.conf.

another proposal for aiccu.service
After=aiccu.service should ensure that a service is only started after aiccu has done its work (set up ipv6 tunnels). That is not possible with "daemonize false" (at least not without hacking some kind of aiccu-wait.service). So I object against the original proposal and would like to propose a service file that works with "daemonize true".
My proposal works like the original sysV init script, everything that is to start after aiccu.service really waits for it until the tunnels are set up. Also "Require" is save to use now (with the original proposal services requiring aiccu.service might already have been started when aiccu fails)
The original proposal does not work with "daemonize false" so this breaks any existing configuration on updates and it is not just a matter of "optimal performance".
Other changes of my proposal compared to the original one:
1. /etc/sysconfig/aiccu is optional. add a "-" in the service file to allow startup with it absent.
2. Restart=no is the default so drop that part
You might want to readd the After-dependence on time-sync.target from the original init script. Also a "Before=multi-user.target" might be good.
Because aiccu provides some sort of network connections it might even be worth considering to start aiccu.service a little bit earlier like this:
After=iptables.service ip6tables.service network.service NetworkManager.service NetworkManager-wait-online.service
If you are busy, I may help out as an provenpackager
Please, go ahead. I am not as familiar with systemd as I would like to be, and am also unfortunately low in free time at present.
I have found aiccu-2007.01.15-9.fc16 on koji. Is there any good reason to not use
but instead create an empty /etc/sysconfig/aiccu and use
? The only use of the file I see would be to give the file name of a different config file. And if you are able to figure out yourself how to do that, you will also be able to create that file.
Something else I noticed: the /var/run/aiccu.pid in the default /etc/aiccu.conf should also have the "/var" removed.
Thank you for your helpful comments. I have fixed this in aiccu-2001.01.15-9.fc16.
