Bug Description

I don't think we should include gnome-nettool in the default Ubuntu install. The interface is fairly complicated and is not something most people use.

As of a couple days ago, gnome-nettool pulls in finger and nmap to the Ubuntu desktop image. gnome-nettool is also responsible for pulling in whois (which for some weird reason includes the binary mkpasswd). whois is very handy for checking websites, but I don't know whether it should or not be included by default.

Paolo, thanks for your merge proposal. I believe we reserve the "fix committed" status for when the bug has been fixed in the source branch, or more specifically, when your merge proposal has been accepted.
