Comment 1 HAT 2010-05-22 17:24:04 UTC
Summary and Description are old-fashioned.
AppleTalk is already disabled by default.

Netatalk team consult Fedora packagers.
We will change initscript's name from "atalk" to "netatalk".
A keyword "atalk" is an abbreviation for "AppleTalk".


Do you have the objection in this?

Comment 2 Jiri Skala 2010-05-24 10:55:28 UTC
This shouldn't be a problem. Do you plan to release new tarball with renamed initscript?

Comment 3 HAT 2010-05-24 14:38:46 UTC
Our policy follows the opinion of the packagers.
We never change the name for Fedora/RedHat.

It has already changed to "netatalk" for Solaris and Debian.
These have followed the opinion of specialist.

Renaming initscript, POSIX compliance

I've made attached patch that renames atalk -> netatalk and there are additional changes due to POSIX compliance - two kind of changes:

- correct exit codes when something is wrong (e.g. no conf file, ...)
- tests moved to starting fce

Summary proposal: Daemon providing Apple Protocol Suite for BSD-derived systems
Description proposal (used from sourceforge.net):
Netatalk is a daemon which provides POSIX-compliant *NIX/*BSD systems with the ability to share files and printers with Apple Macintosh computers.

Any objection?


Comment 5 HAT 2010-05-27 16:04:25 UTC


>-sysvdir        = $(DESTDIR)/etc/rc.d/init.d
>+sysvdir        = /etc/rc.d/init.d

This is already fixed in netatalk 2.1.1.
See NEWS file in netatalk 2.1.1 taball.

>Changes in 2.1.1
>* FIX: DESTDIR support: DESTDIR was expanded twice



These are not needed because all of these can be specified at
configure time.

I think /etc/netatalk is better than /etc/atalk.
What do you think?

I think it is enough.
Please refer to the following sentences.


netatalk is a daemon which provides POSIX-compliant *NIX/*BSD systems with the ability to share files and printers with Apple Macintosh computers.


Netatalk is a freely-available Open Source AFP fileserver. It also provides a kernel level implementation of the AppleTalk Protocol Suite. A *NIX/*BSD system running Netatalk is capable of serving
many Macintosh clients simultaneously as an AppleShare file server (AFP), AppleTalk router, *NIX/*BSD print server, and for accessing AppleTalk printers via Printer Access Protocol (PAP). Included
are a number of minor printing and debugging utilities.


# description: This package is an implementation of "AFP over TCP"
#              and provides printer, file sharing, and routing
#              services via legacy AppleTalk networking protocol.
