Comment 66 for bug 1273484

Pointing users of the current Nagios plugins package to a different package would not only be a huge disservice to current Nagios users, but it could very likely cause a number of problems and community and customer backlash. I trust that the package maintainers would not make such a brash decision.

I would also like to point out that there are ulterior motives at play that most people are not aware of at this point. Michael Friedrich originally opened this bug and he's no doubt playing some cards he's not sharing with everyone.

An explanation of why Nagios made the changes we did, as well as what is playing out behind the scenes, is outlined in this article:

For those of you who are interested, the current Nagios plugins team is quite active and is close to a new release.
