Now that this page is short enough. Should we merge it into [[Systemd]]. Most of the information left are already exits in [[Systemd]]. -- [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk:Fengchao|talk]]) 09:50, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

:: I agree. [[Help:Style#Daemon operations]] should be updated first, however. -- [[User:Lonaowna|Lonaowna]] ([[User talk:Lonaowna|talk]]) 11:56, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
 
:::[[Help:Style]] doesn't make reference to initscripts [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Help%3AStyle&diff=253972&oldid=253958 any more] and recommends direct links to [[systemd]] now. Of course the daemon-related discussions in [[Help talk:Style]] are still current, I've just made a quick adaptation for the moment. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 15:16, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
 
::::I'm all for condensing excessive information, but isn't the systemd page a little too large for a merge just yet? [[User:T1nk3r3r|T1nk3r3r]] ([[User talk:T1nk3r3r|talk]]) 06:22, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
 
:::::The only problem would be merging the introduction. [[Daemons#Managing daemons]] is already duplicated in [[systemd#Using units]].
 
:::::About the excessive length of [[systemd]], [[Talk:Systemd#Duplication of content in Native configuration section]] would give a big help.

:::::::I'm still in favor: now that this discussion is bumped you can wait a couple of days for objections, and if none are raised you can go ahead with the merge if you have the time (assuming you agree as well of course). — [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 11:55, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
 
 
::::::::I have all the time in the world, but where do you think it should go? It seems a little off from the entire [[systemd]]. --'''<span style="text-shadow:grey 0.1em 0.1em 0.1em; font-size:110%">[[User:Det|<span style="color:gold">D</span><span style="color:orange">e</span><span style="color:red">t</span>]][[User talk:Det|<sup><font color="white">talk</font></sup>]]</span>''' 13:12, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:::::::::I think that [[systemd#Using units]] could explain a bit what a "service" is, it can start either a daemon or a "oneshot" task. By the way, I think that the note is inaccurate, {{ic|systemd.service(5)}} states that for {{ic|1=Type=oneshot}} "it is expected that the process has to exit before systemd starts follow-up units", so I would not call it a daemon. I think that the note brings more confusion than clarification, so I would leave it out. -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 15:20, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
 
 
::::::::::+1, that note is a creative interpretation of "background process" at best. I'd just revise the intro sentence and merge it to [[Init]] if applicable. We can still add an explanation to [[systemd#Units]] or link to [[Init]] from there. -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 11:13, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:::::::::::I don't have preference for either the [[systemd#Units]] or the [[Init]] ideas, however I've just thought that merging [[Daemons list]] back here could be a third option that could spare this title from becoming a redirect. — [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 15:11, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
 
 
::::::::::::That's a great idea actually. I'll merge both unless there's arguments against. -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 19:19, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:::::::::::::I've found the time to do it :) [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Daemons&diff=389531&oldid=387285] I've also removed the Note, as I agreed about its inaccuracy as well. Finally, I've removed the Merge flag, as I think the article can live standalone now. The next user who agrees please close the discussion. — [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 08:30, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
