Re: status of dftp and dpkg-ftp

I would like dpkg-ftp to become part of the "base system", which is the
stuff that is a required part of Debian. It's necessary so that
mostly-net installs would work. Dpkg-ftp has some bugs to be shaken out
before that happens. Also, the installation menu in 1.1 doesn't set up
PPP and SLIP for you, which is necessary for many network
installations. So expect this in 1.2 .  The target date for that is 3
months after 1.1 is released.
