Bug#153977: O: xinetd -- An inetd replacement with interesting extra functionality

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-07-23
Severity: normal


Due to increasing home commitments, family and pets particularly. Also
greater work commitments, and a desire to get back to grass-roots coding, I
am giving up one or two of my more high-maintainence packages.

xinetd is a package which I originally adopted in order to fix some problems
with the configuration managment which was destroying the configs on my
server, it has proven a very interesting package to handle and upstream do
seem to respond to questions (eventually) -- It has become a bit too much
for me due to problems in the lack of testing upstream subject the software
to before release. As such, I would like someone to take it off my hands. I
can't really continue to manage it with all my other jobs :(

xinetd would be better maintained by a seasoned debian developer, although
it could prove to be a very interesting project for a dedicated and skilled
person currently in the NM process.

I would be prepared to mentor (at a low-level of communication) someone who
wanted to adopt xinetd and become a developer, on the proviso that they find
someone else to sponsor them in.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
