According to the systemd snippets , the new macros should be only

The macros apply for both NEW packages and converted packages, in F18+.
There are additional triggers needed if converting from a SysV init
script package, but the scriptlet macros are identical.
I have a few questions:
1- Since the packages I mantain build on RHEL5+ and Fedora 16+ (and have
for a long time), can I assume these macros in the spec file is optional?
If that's the case, what should I do with the bugs opened?
I'd have to defer to FESCo on that.
2- What's the status of the back-port of those macros to F16/F17
different expansion of course)? Is it under evaluation? Should I wait
for the resolution of this before starting to add the macros?
I have no idea. Lennart has yet to respond.
3- If I should start putting the macros in now in the spec files and
still keep the option to build the same package on all EPEL/Fedora
supported distributions, can I assume RHEL 7 = Fedora 18 for the various
I can't speak to that either, sorry.
