 by design it's never going to "improve".

 the problems you're encountering with lack of documentation are down
to pottering's pathological lack of comprehension of his
responsibilities as a software developer:

 don't get caught up in the "civility" part, that's a distraction.

 no, there's no documentation because pottering *keeps adding more and
more to systemd*, making it a moving target, and, as PID 1, that's
incredibly dangerous.  i wasn't previously aware that you can't even
upgrade without a reboot any more thanks to systemd being PID 1.

 the more i learn about systemd the more shocked i become that people
don't realise how serious this really is.
