[DEP9] availability of implementation
maintainers of server packages that depend on or suggest update-inetd,
will be happy to know that a first implementation of update-inetd's
replacement, reconf-inetd, has been uploaded to experimental
(currently pending in NEW).
DEP9 has also been updated; please check it out, especially the section on:
Transition of "Depends: update-inetd" packages 
I'll follow up with an announcement to -devel as soon as reconf-inetd
is past the NEW queue.
