Systemd only exists for EL7. As such, the EL7 packages will target systemd.
The init scripts will stay in EL6. As yet though, I haven't created a
4.5.0 package for EL6. This will happen after I get it working properly
My current plan is to have 4.5.0 an upgrade to 4.4.x - as this should be
It will also reduce my workload to not maintain 4.2.x, 4.4.x and 4.5.x :)
