The packages were removed due to shortage of space apparently.
So I do not think there is anything really to be maintained. Again
nobody is going to ever consider removing rp-pppoe from RHEL.. The new
spin would be just the original + 2-3 packages in repos.
Also rp-pppoe has no new dependencies.
Do you have any statistics on how people use dsl/ADSL in different countries?
Along these lines:
By plain bridge protocol,
Through USB modems,
Through routers + ethernet
Through routers + two layers of firewall +ethernet
Bridges + more advanced h/w
I think at least 50% of the home users in India must be using the
bridge protocol on cheaper adsL modems and adsl routers cum modems.
