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.

Comment 2 Ruben Kerkhof 2009-06-04 11:39:33 EDT
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- (in rawhide).  Thanks for the report.
