When installing redshift it was unclear we need to also make sure a geoclue agent is running in the background for geoclue2.

Since the quickest way to do that is start the geoclue2 demo agent included with this package, it would be nice if this package came with a service file ready to enable.

Not sure this is at all useful right now, as you also need a notify impl like notification-daemon, which needs a graphical session so starting it during user manager setup will most likely fail.

Both services already have desktop files already which can be handled by any impl of XDG autostart.
