Bug#925153: wpasupplicant: Remove `-s` switch from command in service unit

Paul Menzel-5
Package: wpasupplicant
Version: 2:2.7+git20190128+0c1e29f-3
Severity: normal


Dear Debian folks,


Debian carries a patch, that wpa_supplicant is called with the switch `-s` [1]
in the service unit, so that it logs to Syslog [2].

To my knowledge, with systemd it’s preferred to log to stdout, it’d be great
if the hunk of that patch could be reverted. Unfortunately, there is no
reference to a justification, why logging should be done to syslog, so it
should be removed nevertheless.


Kind regards,

Paul
