Yeah, might be useful some day -> keep

openvpn support in DSLinux would rock, but I don't know if
it is feasible -> drop lzo and openvpn until someone starts to work on it

Yeah, that does not sound useful.

Apparently an old video streaming app -> drop
ClamAV (virus scanner) related -> drop
> +conntrack/ (don't import)
Discontinued (see http://ctorrent.sourceforge.net/) -> drop
We'd be better off with something like rtorrent probably (if a torrent
client is useful all).

Wake on Lan client -> keep
What does this do?
Google suggests it's some flash bootloader utility or something
Maybe useful to set -k flag on binaries at run time (for debugging).
"transparent ftp proxy" -> drop
Does this version have a gdbserver with support for ARM CPUs?
Iperf is a tool to measure maximum TCP bandwidth, allowing the tuning of
various parameters and UDP characteristics. Iperf reports bandwidth,
delay jitter, datagram loss.
--> keep, maybe someone has use for this.
Can't figure out which jpegview program this is.
If it uses the framebuffer, keep it. Else drop.
Level-7 filtering with iptables -> drop

See above where?

scripting language, probably too heavy -> drop
Fax utlitity? -> drop

CPU benchmark tool, see http://www.tux.org/~mayer/linux/bmark.html
We already know our CPUs suck -> drop
Does anyone need an snmp client? I guess someone may find use for this
if they are monitoring a network with snmp. -> keep
Useful to measure wifi throughput -> keep
Odd little tool:
Can't really figure out what it's supposed to do.
Prevent apps from dying if they run out of memory? -> drop

* Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
* Unpacking only: RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS
We don't use pam -> drop
LOL -> drop
DSLinux will never be a router -> drop
RADIUS client. I don't know if anyone can use this for anything -> drop
Useful for routers, but not for DSLiunx -> drop
May be interesting for people who want to sync data from their
desktops to DSLinux. If there was a howto on the wiki
for how to set the client and server up on a desktop and DSLinux,
I guess a few people would use this, esp. if we ever get something
that understands iCal and the like. The rsync server can run from inetd.
Maybe samba works better than NFS? -> keep
No need, we are insecure by definition -> drop

Does someone want to try to enable udev to get
around that read-only /dev problem with telnetd
and others? -> keep
First hit on google:
"flexible framework for extensive logging of packets
on a firewall machine." -> drop
Mmmh. They've changed the Makefile structure?
Oh well :(
Doing a full merge will probably be lots of work then...
