Package: nagios-common
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-10
Severity: wishlist

what about enabling support for splitted up configuration of services(or
others?) ?
Like this...in /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg


/etc/nagios/services.cfg should contain only templates, all hosts will
have separate file in /etc/nagios/services.
I have very large service.cfg file and this separation helped me.
I think, there is no need to modify shipped services.cfg, enabling support
for directory based configuration and mentioning it in README.Debian should be enought.

Second thing,
there is hardcoded hostname nagioshost. 
Maybe you should mention in README.Debian, that users who want to use
this script, should put some ip address to /etc/hosts or overwrite it in
this script.
