Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

Please add some package specific information for NIS to the release
notes documenting problems caused by interaction between the Network
Manager support and an unused Network Manager instance.  Something along
these lines, though perhaps someone less involved with the package could
come up with more user friendly wording:

 The version of ypbind included in the NIS package in etch contains
 support for Network Manager.  This support causes ypbind to disable NIS
 client functionality when Network Manager reports that the computer is
 disconnected from the network.  Since Network Manager will usually
 report that the computer is disconnected when it is not in use NIS
 users with NIS client systems should ensure that Network Manager
 support is disabled on those systems.  This can be done by either:

  - Uninstalling the network-manager package.
  - Editing /etc/default/nis to add -no-dbus to YPBINDARGS.
 
 [ONLY IF THE RELEASE TEAM ACCEPT 3.17-6:] The use of -no-dbus is the
 default for new installs of Debian but was not the default in previous
 releases.

Thanks.
