As I already wrote, we don't want to maintain that information for all
and every distribution. For example there are ones out there that don't
have dh-systemd, so that would be the first extra-rule. If it is there,
people expect it works and is up to date. And there are *many*
exceptions. Believe me, I wrote (parts)/know our build system. It does
not make it easier to have a very minimal version in the README.md that
worked for your use case. It will never be complete, it will outdate.
Sorry, but don't expect me to merge that. And without speaking for the
others in the team, don't expect anyone from us to merge that.

Write a blog post, maintain a wiki, fork the users-guide, whatever fits
you, but I don't won't that. Not in the users-guide, not in the project

Thanks, rck
