Subject: RFA: update-inetd -- inetd configuration file updater
Date: Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:24:54 +0100
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the update-inetd package.

The package description is:
 This package provides a program used by other packages to
 automatically update /etc/inetd.conf, the configuration file shared
 by all implementations of the Internet super-server.
 .
 Note that xinetd is not supported by this package.

update-inetd is a native package, implemented in perl, and with system tests
in python.

update-inetd has serious design flaws and is meant to be replaced by another
tool, as described in DEP9 (http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep9/)

The adopter should look at DEP9, and consider also adopting reconf-inetd
(also RFA'd, see #719792).
