RFE: Add sshd (openssh-server) to base packages

and a lot of cruft
LOTS of audio stuff
LOTS of DOS stuff: dos2unix, unix2dos, dosfstool, mtools, samba-client,
LOTS of graphics stuff even with NO advanced window manager -- gimp,
iptables and lokkit, even though a Workstation install
LOTS of cd creationstuff -=- mkieofs, cdrecord, cdlabelgen ...
Mozilla AND Netscape
gnome-audio, rhn_register-gnome -- even though no Gnome
yp-tools -- (still ?)

would keep the permissions right -- but no sshd is present to start so I might
Openssh-server is less that 300K -- trivial -- it is a basic security tool, just
as is sudo -- ship it turned off but installed in _every_ base install.
Please consider adding openssh-server to the base install, to encourage NOT

I have added mt-st to the Network Support component. I won't add openssh-server
to that component since it is turned on by default in the package. If
openssh-server is needed, you can select it as an individual package during the
I'm closing this as WONTFIX.
