Description H. Peter Anvin 2001-11-12 23:47:24 EST
RedHat 7.2 includes tftp-hpa-0.17, which is severely outdated and has
a number of serious bugs.  The current version is 0.25.  I keep getting bug
reports for 0.17 because of this inclusion in RedHat.

RedHat may also want to consider getting rid of the netkit-tftp client; the
client in tftp-hpa is almost certainly better by now.

tftp-0.28-1 in rawhide might do the trick.
