Package: systemd
Version: 247.3-6

I have used debootstrap to install Debian on an old qnap. Problem:
The power button appears to be ignored, i.e. I have to login remotely
to run poweroff. Too bad that PermitRootLogin in sshd_config doesn't

This is basic functionality and should work right from the start.
AFAICT there is no such problem for sysvinit-core.

After some research I found out that dbus wasn't installed. I would
suggest to move dbus to Required in systemd's package dependencies.

IMHO the current setup is fine. There are legitimate use cases of
minimal images and runtime environments where you just want to pull in
some tools, without the whole dbus system session.

I agree, and I think dbus as a hard dependency of systemd would be
inappropriate even if reimplementations like dbus-broker didn't exist.
A Recommends seems correct to me.


I don't remember my exact reasoning, but looking at the canonical definitions
of the various priorities in Policy, I think standard is proportionate.

Thanks Simon and Luca for your feedback.
This settles this then I'd say and I'm going to close this bug report.
