There's a misunderstanding here. I'm not asking to explain the
semantics (what this patch does) — I repeat, it's rather obvious from
the source itself, the patch is indeed simple. I'm trying to get how the
patch's author would describe the pragmatic value of this patch. IOW:
we see this patch does XXX. What, in Alexey's view, are we trying to
achieve by implementing XXX?

Descriptive commit messages are done (and are enforced in successful
communities, e. g. LKML) for a reason.

The above essentially is my previous comment here, reworded and clarified.

If for some reason you believe it's shameful or rude to the community to
"waste time" on textual explanations, fair enough — I'll maybe write a commit
message myself (with my take on why this might be useful) and then most
likely ACK the same patch, with authorship reattributed to you via From:
in the patch body and the new commit message. Or else NAK this
particular revision with an empty commit message and leave it up to
ldv на .
If it were up to me, I would not approve of empty commit messages in a
lasting, crucial project like hasher-privd. People are forgetful, and
commit messages exist to help.

I agree.

Sure it must. No one is trying to drop support for anything-but-systemd
from hasher-privd.

Here I was talking about the operational details of the daemon running
_under_ systemd, not without systemd. The insight about Delegate=yes
does not interfere with non-systemd installations.

Oh, I heard they were just recently working on cgroup2 support.
