-      <para>Network link configuration is performed by the <literal>net_setup_link</literal>
-      udev builtin.</para>
-
-      <para>The link files are read from the files located in the
-      system network directory <filename>/usr/lib/systemd/network</filename>,
-      the volatile runtime network directory <filename>/run/systemd/network</filename>
-      and the local administration network directory <filename>/etc/systemd/network</filename>.
-      Link files must have the extension <filename>.link</filename>; other extensions are ignored.
-      All link files are collectively sorted and processed in lexical order,
-      regardless of the directories in which they live. However, files with
-      identical filenames replace each other. Files in <filename>/etc</filename>
-      have the highest priority, files in <filename>/run</filename> take precedence
-      over files with the same name in <filename>/usr/lib</filename>. This can be
-      used to override a system-supplied link file with a local file if needed;
-      a symlink in <filename>/etc</filename> with the same name as a link file in
-      <filename>/usr/lib</filename>, pointing to <filename>/dev/null</filename>,
-      disables the link file entirely.</para>
-
-      <para>The link file contains a <literal>[Match]</literal> section, which
-      determines if a given link file may be applied to a given device; and a
-      <literal>[Link]</literal> section specifying how the device should be
-      configured. The first (in lexical order) of the link files that matches
-      a given device is applied.</para>
-
-      <para>A link file is said to match a device if each of the entries in the
-      <literal>[Match]</literal> section matches, or if the section is empty.
