After a strong discussion, creating a new monitoring-plugins package is 
reasonable. The upgrade path from nagios-plugins -> monitoring-plugins 
package should be established. Otherwise users install something they 
are not able to trust anymore.

It also states another valid point - Nagios Enterprises copied the 
website content owned by the now renamed project at 
https://www.monitoring-plugins.org . That's a clear copyright violation.

Upstream has updated their url, and is waiting for future releases with 
renamed tarballs and/or decision from the rhel bug.

They were faster than me, already updated.

Still pending, and the Nagios Enterprises guy posted the same FUD as on 
the RHEL bug.

Updated with comments same as on the other tickets, the Nagios 
Enterprises guy comments there as well.
