KS
2* check systemd-tmpfiles for selinux context hookup for mknod(), symlink() and similar
3
c904f64d
LP
4* swap units that are activated by one name but shown in the kernel under another are semi-broken
5
05677bb7 6* make anaconda write timeout=0 for encrypted devices
73090dc8 7
f957632b
KS
8* Dangling symlinks of .automount unit files in .wants/ directories, set up
9 automount points even when the original .automount file did not exist
10 anymore. Only the .mount unit was still around.
11
9a366075
LP
12* make polkit checks async
13
a40593a0 14* properly handle .mount unit state tracking when two mount points are stacked one on top of another on the exact same mount point.

71092d70 21Features:
7e2c2bcf 22
5486bcef
LP
23* add configure switch for enabling/disabling efi stuff
24
25* introduce ExecCondition= in services
26
0028da22 27* unify killing logic of service, socket, mount, swap units
bfb7ec0e 28
314b4b0a 29* logind: document new PrepareForSleep(false) semantics and UnlockSessions call in wiki
bfb7ec0e 30
a4cc3e5c
LP
31* if we have systemd-analyze in C "systemctl dot" should move there too
32
33* fsck hookup for the ESP mount is missing
34
35* external: maybe it is time to patch procps so that "ps" links to
36 libsystemd-logind to print a pretty service name, seat name, session
37 name in its output. Currently it only shows cgroup membership, but
0028da22 38 that's sometimes kinda hard to parse for a human.
a4cc3e5c 39
50326b13
LP
40* write man page for efi boot generator
41
adf36dd0
LP
42* maybe not install getty@tty1.service symlink in /etc but in /usr?
43
9795da43 44* re-enable "make check" for gtk-doc (broken for unknown reason)
205b7fa4 45
c817bbb1
LP
46* "systemctl disable" on a static unit prints no message and does
47 nothing. "systemctl enable" does nothing, and gives a bad message
48 about it. Should fix both to print nice actionable messages.
49
ec6d2611
LP
50* fstab: add new mount option x-systemd-after=/foobar/waldo to allow manual dependencies to other mount points
51 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=812826
52
7e2c2bcf 53* cgroup attrs:
7e2c2bcf
LP
54 - don't filter out duplicate settings
55 - support high-level cgroup setting syntax in systemctl. Example: "systemctl set-cgroup-attr MemoryLimit 5K"
56 - support writte string mapping even for non-high-level settings
57 - add man page for systemctl commands
58 - make sure we work fine with multi-line strings
7b4da18c 59
788f75a0
LP
60* print a nicer explanation if people use variable/specifier expansion in ExecStart= for the first word
61
7b4da18c 62* kernel cmdline switch to turn off predictable network interface names
788f75a0 63
205b7fa4
LP
64* mount: turn dependency information from /proc/self/mountinfo into dependency information between systemd units.
65
95b4be17
LP
66* logind: optionally, ignore idle-hint logic for autosuspend, block suspend as long as a session is around
67
499519c6
LP
68* exec: when deinitializating a tty device fix the perms and group, too, not only when initializing. Set access mode/gid to 0620/tty.
69
490b7e47
LP
70* DeviceAllow/DeviceDeny: disallow everything by default, but whitelist /dev/zero, /dev/null and friends
71
72* service: watchdog logic: for testing purposes allow ping, but do not require pong
73
5965984d
LP
74* journald: when dropping msgs due to ratelimit make sure to write
75 "dropped %u messages" not only when we are about to print the next
76 message that works, but alraedy after a short tiemout
77
e4181484
LP
78* journald: also get thread ID from client, plus thread name
79
e9fd44b7
LP
80* check if we can make journalctl by default use --follow mode inside of less if called without args?
81
15abdb9a 82* Add a verbose mode to "systemctl start" and friends that explains what is being done or not done
e9fd44b7 83
3040728b
LP
84* journal is not closed properly at shutdown when run in a container?
85
15abdb9a 86* journal: when waiting for journal additions in the client always sleep at least 1s or so, in order to minimize wakeups
8ed20651 87
e6c6e7af
LP
88* When shutdown.target is queued begin with an asynchronous sync()?
89
e673ad04
LP
90* add API to close/reopen/get fd for journal client fd in libsystemd-journal.
91
92* maybe add API to send pairs of iovecs via sd_journal_send
93
94* fallback to /dev/log based logging in libsystemd-journal, if we can't log natively?
95
96* declare the local journal protocol stable in the wiki interface chart
97
7361c3b4 98* journal: reuse XZ context
8b04b925 99
7361c3b4
LP

101
e673ad04
LP
102* introduce ntp.service (or suchlike) as symlink that is used to arbitrate between various NTP implementations
103
d2e83c23
KS
104* timer units should get the ability to trigger when:
105 - CLOCK_REALTIME makes jumps (TFD_TIMER_CANCEL_ON_SET)
106 - DST changes
107
108* update the kernel's TZ (sys_tz) when DST changes
109
110* sync down the system time to the RTC when:
f6113d42
KS
111 - CLOCK_REALTIME makes jumps (the user explicitely requested a time set)
112 - DST/timezone changes && ntp is active && RTC-in-localtime (never do it without ntp)
d2e83c23 113 This takes care of syncing ntpdate updates to the RTC, and DST updates for localtime
7a43e910 114 mode, it will never touch the RTC if the no reliable time source is active or the
d2e83c23 115 user did not request anything like it.
c55b1b59 116
822e5dd1
LP
117* When we update the kernel all kind of hibernation should be prohibited until shutdown/reboot

123* if booted in "quiet" mode, and an error happens, turn on status
124 output again, so that the emergency mode isn't totally
125 surprising. Also, terminate plymouth.
9ec82de1 126
e707c494
LP
127* localectl: add listing support for X11 keymaps, by parsing /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst
128
129* libunwind support for coredump pattern hook, and includes this in
130 the message for coredumps. After all, libunwind is now capable to
131 unwind coredumps since a few weeks ago. This probably requires that
7f873283
LP
132 we have nice support for multi-line messages on display in
133 logs-show.c. Alternatively: use libelfutil, which seems to be the
134 better supported alternative.
e707c494 135
e707c494
LP
136* figure out relation of --all and --full in the various tools
137
138* journal: when writing journal auto-rotate if time jumps backwards
139
220369cc
LP
140* introduce new "journal" group in place of adm? introduce groups for the various mini daemons?
141
142* journal: add a setgid "adm" utility to invoke from libsystemd-journal, which passes fds via STDOUT and does PK access
143
f2d433e1
ZJS
144* journactl: support negative filtering, i.e. FOOBAR!="waldo",
145 and !FOOBAR for events without FOOBAR.
a19554ed 146

a19554ed
LP
148
149* add libsystemd-password or so to query passwords during boot using the password agent logic
150
151* journal: when rotating, copy over old acls/access mode
152
153* journal: document why we do not give ownership to journal files to the user that created them but use FS ACLs for that
154
155* journal: send out marker messages every now and then, and immediately sync with fdatasync() afterwards, in order to have hourly guaranteed syncs.
156
157* journal: when we haven't written anything in a while, sync to disk and mark file as offline, in order to be more often than not in a clean state
158
159* journal-send.c, log.c: when the log socket is clogged, and we drop, count this and write a message about this when it gets unclogged again.
160
1cb88f2c
LP
161* If we show an error about a unit (such as not showing up) and it has no Description string, then show a description string generated form the reverse of unit_name_mangle().
162
163* fedup: add --unit to systemctl switch-root somehow
164* fedup: don't delete initrd on switch-root
165* fedup: generator
603cd8fe 166

LP
173* document that people can use file system ACLs to manage access to journal files, with example
174
6d0274f1
LP
175* timedated: export boolean that clarifies whether NTP is even available

184
9b27910b
LP
185* introduce generic AUGMENT_PID=, AUGMENT_DEVICE= fields
186
b03bfa21
LP
187* deal with sendmail/postfix exclusivity
188
935fb723 189* systemctl enable: improve the success messages (i.e. more human readable, less shell-like)
b03bfa21
LP
190
191* systemctl enable: fail if target to alias into doesn't exist? maybe show how many units are enabled afterwards?
192
935fb723 193* on shutdown: move utmp, wall, audit logic all into PID 1 itself, get rid of systemd-update-utmp-runlevel
08f95888 194
7d8197d1
KS
195* add "provisioning" instructions to setup an empty /etc + /var
196 - used to setup a new container from a shared /usr
197 - superset of tmpfiles model
198 - instructions shipped by packages and stored in /usr/lib/
199 - compose /etc/passwd and /etc/group, copy files
200 - able to create uid + gid used by packages, for file ownership
201
9ee58bdd

251
4a30847b
LP
252* move PID 1 segfaults to /var/lib/systemd/coredump?
253
b5b46d59

88f89a9b 269
38a60d71
LP
270* allow writing multiple conditions in unit files on one line
271
d8b78264
LP
272* explore multiple service instances per listening socket idea

7560fffc
LP
276* shutdown: don't read-only mount anything when running in container
277
5a7e9599
LP
278* nspawn: --read-only is not applied recursively to submounts
279
68f16003 280* MountFlags=shared acts as MountFlags=slave right now.
0790b9fe 281
5a7e9599
LP
282* ReadOnlyDirectories= is not applied recursively to submounts
283
68f16003
LP
284* drop PID 1 reloading, only do reexecing (difficult: Reload()
285 currently is properly synchronous, Reexec() is weird, because we
286 can't delay the response properly until we are back, so instead of
287 being properly synchronous we just keep open the fd and close it
edca2e23 288 when done. That means clients don't get a successful method reply,
68f16003 289 but much rather a disconnect on success.
0790b9fe 290
68f16003 291* document that service reload may be implemented as service reexec
df1c8f6a 292

326
c66d36e5
LP
327* man: clarify that time-sync.target is not only sysv compat but also useful otherwise. Same for similar targets
328
be0aa784
LP
329* .device aliases need to be implemented with the "following" logic, probably.
330
461b1822
LP
331* refuse taking lower-case variable names in sd_journal_send() and friends.
332
9946996c
LP
333* load-fragment: when loading a unit file via a chain of symlinks
334 verify that it isn't masked via any of the names traversed.
335
d1970645
LP
336* journald: we currently rotate only after MaxUse+MaxFilesize has been reached.
337
3471bedc

f7f21d33
LP
357* readahead: when bumping /sys readahead variable save mtime and compare later to detect changes

LP
364* pam_systemd: try to get old session id from cgroup, if audit sessionid cannot be determined

369
d3a3f222
KS
370* automount: implement expire:
371 - set superblock timeout AUTOFS_DEV_IOCTL_TIMEOUT_CMD
372 - periodically run AUTOFS_DEV_IOCTL_EXPIRE_CMD
373 - every timeout/4 (original autofs logic)
374 - blocking, needs a thread
375 - run until -EAGAIN
376 - receive expire packet on pipe if kernel tells the timeout is over
377 - call umount
378 - answer expire packet on pipe with AUTOFS_DEV_IOCTL_{READY,FAIL}_CMD
379 - AUTOFS_DEV_IOCTL_EXPIRE_CMD returns

8d0e38a2 492
f28f1daf
LP
493* verify that the AF_UNIX sockets of a service in the fs still exist
494 when we start a service in order to avoid confusion when a user
495 assumes starting a service is enough to make it accessible
496
88a07670
LP
497* Make it possible to set the keymap independently from the font on

590* NTP: the kernel's 11-minutes-mode syncs the system time to the RTC, but only
591 in an ~30 minutes window. It does not adjust larger differences. Find a way
592 to tell the kernel, to always do a full time sync when the RTC is in UTC and
593 we are in 11-minutes-mode. When we trust the system time to NTP we also want
594 the RTC to sync up.
