Package: nagios-plugins
Severity: wishlist

Nagios-Plugins depends on a lot of packages, that one or another of
the plugins require. Probably an admin installing this package 
just needs one or two of the plugins, but he is required to install
all of the depends-packages, to get the plugins he needs. 

I just stumbled over qstat, which is something I see no use, and
another example ist the snmp-dependency, which causes a lot of
the snmp library packages to be installed. 

Perhaps you can find a way to build the package so that you can
specify the dependencies with "recommands" instead of "depends"
for libraries or programs that only a few but not all of the 
plugins rely on, so that administrators can drop these
packages without having to drop the whole package or having
to rebuild the package themselves.

   * Sean Finney:
     - only depend on ntp, not ntp | ntp-simple.  hopefully this should
       allow nagios-plugins to co-exist with openntpd et al.
     - now building against libmysqlclient14-dev.
     - updated Standards-Version to 3.6.2
     - nagios-plugins is now separated into 3 separate packages:
       nagios-plugins, nagios-plugins-basic, and nagios-plugins-standard.
       this should provide folks with a "basic" set of plugins as an
       alternative to those who don't want to bring in so many dependencies
       (specifically, users of nsca and nagios-nrpe-server).  the original
       package will depend on both of the new packages, for backwards
       compatibility.  the list of what-goes-where may change in future
       updates, but nagios-plugins will always bring in everything.
       contact me if you have specific preferences on how the layout should
       be done (closes: #303996, #264194, #255438).
     - another fix to check_mrtg, seems like the WARN and CRIT states
       were working just fine, but there was no way for things to
       be OK.  whoops.  thanks to uno takeshi for looking into this.
       (closes: #335871).
     - updated FSF address, couple other cosmetic lintian-related fixes.
