Description Philip Prindeville 2006-11-26 14:09:56 EST
Description of problem:

The gssftpd server distributed with krb5 is no longer actively being developed,
and indeed some egregious bugs have been found that won't be fixed.  See below.

Hence, having krb5-workstation install an unsupported and buggy application is
questionable at best.

Either the app should be dropped from the packaged build altogether, or else it
should be put into an optional package subcomponent that the user must
explicitly select to be installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.5-7
