I dunno. I though the title of your task was wrong, regarding to your
description. But it appears that it's the description which was wrong, and
the title ok :)

In fact, I have some ideas for this -master task, like the nameserver and
memory if you have NWS, or the agent if you have NetSolve or Ninf. and so
on. But the fact is that NWS is not in Debian yet (although you can find
some packages on my page) and that NetSolve and Ninf are not packaged yet
(although I think I'll do that one day).
