+                is a generator that automatically discovers
+                <filename>/home</filename> and swap partitions and
+                creates mount and swap units for them, based on the
+                the partition type GUIDs of GUID partition tables
+                (GPT). Note that this generator will execute no
+                operation on non-GPT systems, on systems where the
+                units are explicitly configured (for example, listed
+                in
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>fstab</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>)
+                or where the mount point is non-empty.</para>
+
+                <para>This generator will only look for partitions on
+                the same physical disk the root file system is stored
+                on. This generator has no effect on systems where the
+                root file system is distributed on multiple disks, for
+                example via btrfs RAID.</para>
+
+                <para>This generator is useful for centralizing file
+                system configuration in the partition table and making
+                manual configuration in
+                <filename>/etc/fstab</filename> or suchlike
