Hi Apollon,

Fedora tgtd pkg maintainer here.

Better systemd integration seems like a good way to go. BTW I feel deep 
shame about the systemd service file that Fedora is currently using 
(attached), especially the sleep. Does this or another change perhaps 
result in a better way to integrate tgt with systemd?

Do we need two service files or something?

It would be great if tgt could use the same service file(s) on all 
systemd-enabled distros, and these could be included with tgtd.

Regards -- Andy
