debian-kerberos mailing list down?


I am not able to contact the debian-kerberos mailing list for
some reason???

Is there some problem?

Exactly the same problem will exist, I believe with the
other kerberos implementations, so I have CCed debian-kerberos
for open discussion.


Josselin has some very good reasoning here, but I am not really
what to do. If these questions aren't asked, then the Kerberos
configuration will effectively be broken for all users.


Would it be sufficient if the first question simply asked:
"Do you want to configure Kerberos (Yes/No)?"
