inetutils provides common networking clients and servers,
including the inetd super-server, telnetd and telnet, ftpd
and ftp, talkd and talk, tftpd and tftp, uucpd (but no uucp
client), and syslogd.

This is a bugfix release; not only does it update to the
latest upstream release, but also fixes a number of long-
standing issues/failures.

Note that if you use the r* tools (rlogin, rexec, rsh) you
may want to install the new rsh and rsh-server packages, as
those tools are now provided by these additional packages.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-3 ]]

CHANGES (since 1.5-6)
o Update to latest upstream release
o Port to cygwin-1.7
o Removed r* clients and servers; now provided by 'rsh'
  and 'rsh-server' packages.
o Removed support for running inetd as a service on its own. You
  can still run inetd as a service; you just have to use cygrunsrv
  to do it.
o Added xinetd.d/ startup scripts for remaining servers.
