comps: Network Server install class is not structured well
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:38:27 EDT
This is ~duplicate of #18637, but it was public so...
Network Management Workstation and IPX/Netware Connectivity include
Network Server class. As Network Server class includes all kinds of useless
network services, this isn't in line with usual 'Workstation == Secure by default'
Also, Network Servers shouldn't include that much cruft _either_.
Remove Network Server requirement or:
In Networked Workstation, include:
openssh-server <-- most users want this..
sysstat <-- not a network service, no harm done.
Then Network Server can be trashed altogether:
- All Network classes that require xinetd include it themselves.
- ypserv isn't really used that much, no need to install that everywhere
- telnet-server _might_ have to be included, but really shouldn't :-(
- the rest (talk-server, rusers-server, rwall-server, finger-server, rsh-server) are just plain junk.
We are going to have these services off by default so this should not be a issue.
Assigning this to head developer to make final call.
I could understand why services you might actually sometimes need -- but are
disabled by default, like telnet-server -- would be installed but I see zero need
for talk-server etc. :-)
the network server packages in rawhide are secured (off) by default.
since this is the same issue as 18637 and that issue is marked closed, I'm
duplicating this against it ... please reopen if there is something in here we
missed ... thanks for your report!
