Looking at what's in the #Guix inetutils package, there is a lot of terrible crap that doesn't belong there anymore.
inetd - not really.
ftp client/server - nope.
telnet client/server - nope.
rsh client/server - hell nope wtf.
tftp client/server - okay now you're just messing with me.
syslogd - okay, but in an internet utils package?
All this is bundled with essentials like hostname, whois, and ping..
@antifuchs They just make the binaries available. But STILL.
Also, the description lies - the rsh stuff is disabled in the package definition, as well as uucpd and whois. Thankfully.
