- A lot of programms use tcpwrapper which I appreciate a lot. However,
it is quite often not too easy to find out what to write in
hosts.allow to allow access to exactly that program. Frankly speaking,
having that information always in the manpage seems a good idea to me.
(i would like to see that as recommondation for packages in etch)
- IPv6 Readyness
packages in etch should be able to handle IPv6.
There are still a bunch of packages which are not able to handle IPv6.
- packages in base or packages up to priority standard must not use savelog.
There is at least one package in base i know off which uses savelog to
rotate logfiles. Using logrotate is a more save way, as it gives the
user the possibility to configure more easyly when logfiles are
rotated. I would like to see 5(j) of etch release-policy adjusted or
best, to say, all packages must use logrotate.
