Description Alexandre Detiste 2014-10-22 10:20:56 UTC
If a lenghty weekly/monthly/yearly persistent job is aborted by a shutdown,
it will not be restarted on next reboot.

As someone with an SQL background, I mean it would be nice if there was an option to 'ROLLBACK' the timer stamp in /var/lib/systemd/timers/stamp-####.timer to its previous value if the job is aborted by systemd.

Or, as an alternative, only update the timestamp when a job has successfully finished.
