git-daemon is missing a dependency on xinetd

Description of problem:
Git-daemon can't be started if xinetd is not installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Funny you mention this, I just brought this up on the fedora-packaging list a few days ago¹. I do intend to add the xinetd requires, assuming none of the other git maintainers agree with Enrico's opinion that we should _not_ do so.
Ha, quite a coincidence indeed. My point of view is that we should have software which works out of the box without too much configuration. So either you drop a config file in /etc/xinetd.d and require xinetd, or drop one in /etc/events.d or use daemontools, supervisor. The point is, users probably don't care as long as it does what they expect it should do. But I guess you're not the one I have to convince ;-)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This was fixed in git-188.8.131.52-1 (in rawhide). Thanks for the report.
