Source: xinetd

Architecture: source i386
Version: 1:
Distribution: unstable
Urgency: low
Maintainer: Josip Rodin <>
 xinetd     - replacement for inetd with many enhancements
Closes: 53865
 xinetd (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream version, packaged only to fix the Y2K glitch in the
     log file, closes: #53865.
   * Adopted/tookover the package :) I hear Norbert is around, but he
     hasn't contacted anyone regarding the package yet.
   * Introducing debconf support, to ask about converting the config file,
     and to warn about update-inetd malfunctioning. However, I didn't remove
     the old method of asking the questions yet, just in case debconf
     doesn't exist. Only Recommends: debconf. Plus, I had to re-route all
     the messages to &2, because of debconf.
   * Added the missing `k' in `syslogd' recommendation (doh!). Added
     Build-Depends: libwrap0-dev.
   * Moved the whole contents of preinst to postinst (that is, stopping of
     inetd and portmap, and creating the diversion of inetd init file),
     no need to abuse preinst for that.
   * Use --background option for start-stop-daemon, to speed up loading,
     thus having to depend on dpkg >=
   * Fixed some details in postinst, init.d, config, and copyright files.
