Version 5.2-1 of tftp and tftp-server packages have been uploaded.

The tftp and tftp-server packages contain client and server programs
implementing the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), built from the
tftp-hpa source. The TFTP protocol is normally used only for booting
diskless workstations, or for file transfer to embedded clients on a
closed network. The TFTP protocol provides very little security, and
these packages should not be used unless needed.

Changes since 5.0-3

(only upstream changes, no packaging changes)
