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?
