Package: proftpd-dfsg
Version: 1.3.5b-2
Followup-For: Bug #820984

About this, we are going to drop the non-standalone support in maintainer
scripts for the following reasons:

- inetd/xinetd/systemd support is of little interest for a serious ftp server
- maintainer scripts cannot currently support fully the three different
  alternatives now available
- it is much more easy allowing manual non-standalone configuration
- debconf issue here documented is still unknown (and unexpected) 

What is the RMs tought about this issue?
