Package: dehydrated
Version: 0.3.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

dehydrated as a front-end for letsencrypt/ACME is really only usable in an
automated environment.
unfortunately, the documentation is rather silent about deployment.
there's only an "it is advised to run a cronjob regularily" and "you may need to
restart daemons".

The certbot package comes with a pre-configured cronjob/systemd-unit that at
least helps automating the regular call for cert renewal.

it would also be nice to have a more intergrated way of restarting services on
cert-renewal (though that's probably an upstream issue).
