I couldn't find any reference to a new package with an old maintainer
in the documentation.  Asking on IRC, the response was just to package it.
I doubt if anyone would be working on tnt.

AFAIK for my package there is no significant difference between FHS and

What it means is that the programs originally were written very much like
a DOS program, ie all the config files etc had to be in the current directory

I'm not on the policy list so if you are talking about tnt in particular
you'll have to CC me in to comment.

BTW, if anyone is thinking of compiling ax.25 stuff with libc6 there is a
fair amount of changes to put into the includes (they have a problem).
I'll be taking that up with the right channels.
