7 Hmm, I found After more common that Wants, but maybe I only look at
8 units that have problems. :)
10 I think the intent is to handle optional dependencies, but in practice
11 I don't know that it works well. It would almost be better to have
12 some kind of cluster config file that specifies all the actual
13 dependencies (possibly including cross-host) and have it spit out all
14 the unit dependencies automatically. That is a bit much to ask for
15 now, and probably a bit much for somebody who just wants their laptop
16 to launch kde after all their mounts are ready.
18 Specifying After vs Wants separately does make sense. Dependency
19 doesn't have to imply sequential.
