Native systemd service file for dnsmasq
Description of problem:
Let's get this party started since it's Friday ;)
The attached file is a native systemd file for upcoming F15 Feature 
Please read  on how to packaging and installing systemd Service files.
To learn more about Systemd daemon see .
To view old SysV with the new Systemd site by site see for your component see 
If you have any question dont hesitate to ask them on this bug report.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Moving systemd service RFEs to rawhide.
At this point, it is not appropriate in the Fedora 15 cycle to add these. Furthermore, at this point, we are still finalizing the packaging guidelines to handle SysV -> systemd upgrades.
We therefore request:
- wait until there are packaging guidelines (this will be announced on the devel list). This ensures that upgrades will work smoothly and we/you won't have to do multiple sets of changes.
- work on these sorts of changes for Fedora 16 where necessary, not Fedora 15, as we're trying to fix things for release.
- do *not* change a service from SysV to systemd in an existing release (such as Fedora 15), as this is the sort of behavior change that goes against our update policy, documented as https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy
What's the current status on this?
We need this in rawhide as soon as possible unless ofcourse you guys want to
I'm going to start initiating non-responsive packaging policy
Maintainer not listed on vacation and no response et all from maintainer on this bug report note this component is part of default live cd thus will end up blocking the alpha release..

Dbus enabled unit.
Note that you will need add enable-dbus to /etc/dnsmasq.conf
starts and stops cleanly

Spec file patch for dnsmasq
After speaking with Dan in irc we should not use the dbus unit hence deprecating it
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
The attached patches were commited and F16 alpha released. I am closing this BZ for now, fell free to open it again if required. Thanks for the patches.
