6 One thing, your list lists xinetd as a dependency of ftp, but is there
7 actually any reason to offer the server part of the ftp package at all. I
8 mean why would the livecd include an ftp server. I see the point of the
9 ftp client that is in that package, but imho removing the whole of xinetd
10 is no problem.
