Subject: openssh-server: Avahi support for sshd
Date: Tue, 27 Jun 2006 17:48:32 +0200
Package: openssh-server
Version: 1:4.3p2-2
Severity: wishlist

Hello,

I would like to see the ability for sshd to get the service published
automatically through avahi. I don't know if this requires an external
wrapper or if integrating a patch in the debian tree is enough.

Ciao

Is there an existing patch? If not (or even if so), you'd be better off
taking this upstream - let me know the upstream bug number and I can
track it.

Actually this can be done with a trivial fix (stupid me), by
copying /usr/share/doc/avahi-daemon/examples/ssh.service
in /etc/avahi/services/, therefore even if a similar bug is still
present (even if it's integrated, it's not enabled at boot), it's not
openssh-releated, as long as upstream doesn't want to implement it, and
I guess it's such case, but it may just be my prejudice :)

I'm reassigning it, as it may be implemented in avahi-daemon through
debconf.

I don't think that this makes much sense.
If we do it that way we may have to add .service files for every random
service out there (that happens to have a mdns service type assigned)
to the avahi package and a corresponding debconf question.

IMHO this should be done in the package that actually provides the service,
in this case openssh-server.
