Hi Wayne,

I have a set of systemd unit files for Rivendell. Feel free to snag them
from the GitHub repo:

There certainly may be other ways to implement it, but I created a
"rivendell.target" in which each of the three rivendell services lives.
Let me know if you have questions about how I did it.

Thanks for documenting this process!
