Re: suggested virtual package name: dns-server


I find this a good idea because things would go easyier for various

- "High-Volume-Sysadmins": Easyer install/re-install on multiple

  all the details of _all_ other DNS-Server packages to get a new
  package up and running.

It's not that easy with mta's.  That's why the /etc/mta configuration
switch was invented - however nobody has implemented it yet, at least
not in Debian :(

It would surely be nice at some setups to be able to run e.g. incoming
mail and outgoing mail with different mta-implementations.  In real
world there are people who are doing this.
