Re: [ITP] tftp-hpa 5.0

Ok, after you solved the IPv6 stuff, let's get back to our original test

Done. Works with the patch in your last mail.

Tested and found another small issue: the "--standalone" case branch has
a superfluous "shift" which breaks parsing of later params. Please remove.

And - it seems there are some ways to misspell csih_inform: :-)

/usr/bin/tftpd-config: line 175: cish_inform: command not found
/usr/bin/tftpd-config: line 176: csih_infomr: command not found

Thanks for the hints!

Would you mind preparing a last package with the discussed changes, than
I could take over - or do you still have any TODOs?

Just let me know then when you're ready.
