Could you give me more information.  Which services are missing descriptions.  
redhat-config-services is reading service definitions out of the /etc/init.d and
/etx/xinet.d directories.  So these do not come with redhat-config-services.  I
need to know which descriptions are missing and which wordings you would like to
have changed.   If you would like to submit rewordings that would be appreciated


Comment 2 matteo porta 2002-11-05 19:57:39 UTC
missing descriptions:


descriptions to be enhanced (imho):

chargen and chargen-udp	(what is a chargen server?)
daytime and daytime-udp
dbskkd-cdb (what is it?)
ipvsadm (what is LVS?)
irda (what is irda?)
netdump (what is netconsole and netcrashdump?)
netdump-server  (what is it?)
ntpd (what is a ntpv4 daemon?)
privoxy (what is privoxy?)
ups (it has a confusing description)
