That's what I said: "However, the truth is that the shell is a good debugger, and it's what systemd actually provides, along with command-line tools to help debug systemd in particular."

Of your comment, my comment, systemd's actual behavior, and Lennert's original post, the only one that doesn't say that a shell plus systemctl is the right thing is Lennert's original post. That's why I said that *Lennert's writing* gives the wrong impression, and never said that systemd's *actual behavior* was wrong.

I think the point was supposed to be that there is a bunch of debug logging available in the systemd tool kit that isn't available in shell languages beyond 'set -x', maybe because in shell that doesn't show you the environment or working directory or other things or because debugging shell requires modifying the scripts to print out what they are doing rather than having built-in logging.
