[Pkg-varnish-devel] Bug#871489: port-change in varnish hardly possible and reverts on update

Package: varnish
Version: 5.0.0-7+deb9u1
Severity: important

When using systemd its hard to change the port varnish listens on. In our 
case we want it to listen on port 80.

You have to edit /lib/systemd/system/varnish.service as all other config 
options I found are simply ignored.

In addition on update of the varnish package the systemd unit file gets 
overwritten and without notice or warning you have a broken varnish with 
possible external effect.

Please declare the unitfile as config file so the update process asks what 
to do if there are changes to the file or make changing the port in 
/etc/default/varnish possible.

Thanks a lot
