strongswan (5.2.1-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Ship /lib/systemd/system/ipsec.service as a symlink to
strongswan.service in strongswan-starter instead of using Alias= in
the service file. This makes the ipsec name available to invoke-rc.d
before the service gets actually enabled, which avoids some confusion
(closes: #781209).
