Hi there,

I just happened to read the ./docs/contributing.txt and found the lines:

... there are some applets that will not be accepted:

  - Any partitioning tools:

  - Any daemons that are not essential to basic system operation. To date, only
    syslogd and klogd meet this requirement. We do not need a web server, an
    ftp daemon, a dhcp server, a mail transport agent or a dns resolver...

Hmmm. We do have fdisk, httpd, udhcpc and udhcpd and many more.
Maybe someone should update this document.
Has the plan changed?
What is needed for the future of busybox?
How about putting a "list of wishes" into thge CVS?
