I believe that that change was intentionally made so it would be easier to discern the message to which the status referred. If you want to change it, you'll need to rewrite the systemd messaging function to do what you want.

Strange.

I just looked at /etc/sysconfig/init (which is sourced by /etc/initd/functions, which, in turn, is sourced by /usr/lib/systemd/fedora-configure) and it looks, from all that, like the status stuff should be started in column 60.

I also looked at /usr/lib/systemd/systemd (but not its source code) and noted a reference to the fedora-configure file. I suspect, though, that you'll need to look at the systemd source code for a clearer understanding of what's going on.

Sorry. (I sort of like the new look. )

Oops!

I just noticed the BOOTUP parameter setting in the /etc/sysconfig/init file which, if I read it correctly, says that, if you set it to anything except color or verbose. the position (and color) settings will be ignored.

Try changing that value, and see if you like the result.
