           Summary: FileSharing repository should have a package for
                    mldonkey wrapped as a service
           Product: openSUSE 10.2

The repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/filesharing/ contains
mldonkey packages. However, these package provide mldonkey as a normal
application.

It's interesting enough to be able to launch mldonkey as a service, to be
shared between all users of the computer and not to be launched by a specific
one.

Other distro's have implemented this building a package that provides a wrapper
for mldonkey that is a service (you can request various commands using the
'service mldonkey {status|restart|stop|start|...}' syntax.

This way we could also enable the service in YAST, as a network service
(xinetd).

One example of packaging that has used this technique is Mandriva PLF
(http://plf.zarb.org) for mldonkey.
