master.debian.org using identd?


I've just tried fingering master.debian.org and got rejected due to
lack of an "identd" daemon on my machine (I disabled it).

I don't see the point in using identd, it has been explained many
times in many forums that this protocol is totally unreliable, as
anyone (especially today) can install a "daemon" which will fake any
user name.

I therefore suggest that master.debian.org will cease to relay on this
