A nice and easy solution if you need /etc/rc.local on a systemd machine (github.com/catinello)

It's pointless.

An rc-local generator is already present in systemd.

rc.local is a double backwards compatibility mechanism, superseded twice over on operating systems such as Ubuntu and Fedora, that is best forgotten about on systemd operating systems.

If one is going to all of the unnecessary effort of downloading an rc-local service unit from GitHub and installing it, one might as well just make a proper service unit tailored to whatever one wants, straight off the bat. Or download such a service unit from GitHub and install that instead.
