Hi,The "hostname" utility in coreutils-6.9 is still a very old version, and the "hostname" from net-tools 1.60 (released ~2001) is a better featured utility. Since net-tools doesn't seem to be maintained anymore, what about updating the "hostname" sources from coreutils, or simply remove it ? It would avoid duplicate tools, since we can't even disable its compilation at configure time.
