Right, the distributions should be the ones filtering downstream bug
reports, support requests, etc, before sending them to upstream. Also
if something breaks due to a snapshot, then that's the distribution
responsibility, not upstream's.

Anyway, if a new release is imminent, then I'd certainly wait, it's
just that inetutils' releases have been pretty sporadic and given last
one was recently, I was not expcting one in the near future. :)
