systemd drops lists concatenated with EOF
Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:
Disclaimer: I originally posted this on Gallium OS's bug tracker but was told
that Gallium pulls directly from upstream Ubuntu. The original bug report can
be found here:
Release: Gallium OS
When a systemd target file contains a "Conflicts" list at the end of
the file and does not provide a blank line between the end of the list
and the end of the file the list is silently dropped.
This is easier to demonstrate than it is to explain.
Take the following files:
`ServiceA.service`, `ServiceB.service`, and `ServiceC.service` are identical:
Description=This service just remains on
The three services launch a script that keeps on running indefinitely.
This target, `WillTurnOff.target`, will stop all three services as we would
Description=This target will turn off Service's A, B, and C
This target, `WillNotTurnOff.target`, will **not** stop the stop the services:
Description=This target will *not* turn off Service's A, B, and C
Notice the difference. `WillTurnOff.target` contains a blank line
between the last item on the list and the end of the file.
Several things to note:
* I'm pretty sure that this is a bug in systemd, but Gallium's on systemd
version 229, which is more than two versions behind the latest version.
* I'm guessing that systemd is concatenating the EOF onto the list since the
list ends with a backslash.
* Shouldn't systemd at least spit out a warning that something is wrong?
