    Last I heard Red Hat would be the new maintainer, but I only see *.rpm (not news since they don't make packages in .tar.gz for the software they maintain - NEWT, popt...).

    tftp in netkit-0.17 is plain broken
    The netkit-tftp-0.17, which is distributed
    in RedHat 7.1, plain doesn't work.
    The behavior is to send the WRQ request,
    get the ack, then exit before sending any data.
    Whomever added the "firsttime" variable to
    the loop in tftp.c sendfile() must have never
    tested their change because it would never
    have worked.

    save yourself some time and
    remove it and replace it with the tftp
    from the GNU inetutils package.

    Is anyone MAINTAINING netkit?
