Summary0006600: rsync package requires problem
Descriptionrsync has daemon mode, so there is no server program like tftpd/telnetd(or old rsyncd which in SuSE10/11), and no rsync-server
rsync has xinetd configuration file /etc/xinetd.d/rsync like tftp-server(/etc/xinetd.d/tftp) and telnet-server(/etc/xinetd.d/telnet).
But tftp/telnet-server requires xinetd, and rsync does not require.
in this case, a system have rsync installed but no xinetd, system admin have to install xinetd manually if they want rsync be controlled by xinetd.

add "Requires xinetd" to rsync.spec in rsync rpm package.

Additional Informationi found there is no requires in rsync.spec in redhat's latest source rpm:, so same in 6.4
TagsNo tags attached.

According to the recent notes at upstreams bugzilla it seems like this won't get pulled into the package.
