Description Norm Murray 2007-10-02 01:20:10 UTC
Description of problem:
If CUPS fails to bind to either tcp or udp ports it currently continues to
operate in degraded mode. Request is to add a configuration option so that one
can prefer to have CUPS exit with error rather than continue in degraded mode.
