* A tag of wontfix is unacceptable within this bug.  Please do not add
this in again.
* A severity below serious is unacceptable within this bug.  Please do
not change the severity of this bug.
* Not fixing this problem is unacceptable.  This problem needs to be
fixed prior to the release of a new stable and should be backported to

This issue makes the package unusable because it is missing basic
system MIBs.  A solution of "you can use the numeric OIDs" is
unacceptable because it is not the base functionality of the product
to use only numeric OIDs.  Furthermore, the product "out-of-the-box"
spits out hundreds of error messages when used with "snmpwalk -m ALL".

The whole IETF copyright argument is pure bullshit.  RFC3418 is
copyright The Internet Society with full rights to copy the document,
provided the document is not changed, except for the purposes of
creating new standards.  This follows the spirit (if not the letter)
of DFSG #4, Integrity of The Author's Source Code.  The IETF cannot
allow any moron to change the _STANDARDS OF THE INTERNET_ to whatever
the hell they want without the proper process to do so, hence the
"Internet Standards process procedures" clause within the copyright.
If you have a problem with this process, then you can take your
Apache, Exim, Postfix, Firefox, FTP clients, and all other
Internet-based tools based on IETF RFC standards, and throw them in
the fucking garbage.

The same copyright applies to RFCs: 2578, 2579, 2580.  RFCs 1213 &
1907 are covered under the phrase "Distribution of this memo is
unlimited." and http://trustee.ietf.org/24.html.

Please fix this ASAP.
