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.
