What does that bug report to do with the firewall and the desktop live
having avahi running and active by default.
if various tools dep on the lib, then a system won't end up with avahi
installed and running by default. The above is something of a surprise to
many folks running servers.
the comment from JH is the admin/manager of kernel.org
who was a bit
frustrated by avahi running as a service.
