Re: [opensuse-factory] NIS/YP Login trouble after update yesterday

BTW: Since you are the maintainer of libtirpc-netconfig - do you know if

Whom do you mean with "you"? You send the mail to a mailing list, and
the mailing list is clearly not the maintainer:

Defined in package: Base:System/libtirpc
bugowner of libtirpc-netconfig :
tsaupe

maintainer of libtirpc-netconfig :
dirkmueller, elvigia


But to answer your question: every package linked against libtirpc
or loading a shared library or plugin linked against libtirpc needs
to be able to read /etc/netconfig.
So, if somebody enables NIS on his system, every application could
end in the situation to need access to that file.
