tftp should be as standard as telnet

Bug Description


We currently doesn't have tftp anywhere. This tool is really as good to have installed as telnet. Should really be a good thing to have in -standard to provide a good environment :-).

Cheers, /C

I am not convince by this. I never use tftp client outside an installation process (or from a network equipment). I am not sure wee need this tool as a -standard one.

The only candidate is tftp-hpa (others are in universe).

I confirm this bug (was new) as tftp is in universe and not installed by default.
Up to developers to decide.

I can't figure out a good argument to keep this bug around. Rather I'm not convinced why we would have telnet installed by default.
