comment Soft dependency in systemd
:-) What I said: if a dependent service is disabled, starting cfengine3.service should not touch it.

Replying point by point: 1) assuming that such an "umbrella unit" can exist, IMO it should never try to start a sub-unit that is disabled; 2) I know how enable/disable and start/stop work, in particular I know that a disabled service can still be started manually. If the dependant services should stay disabled, then I can't really make sense of having them as separate units; 3) I used the masking approach, too, and ditched it because it didn't allow a service to be started by hand.

That's a very good question! I didn't think about that specifically and I don't know if the author of the PR did either. I would say that if the cfengine3.service is disabled, systemd should not try to start the dependant services either.
