- yp-tools is currently in extra. we would need to bring this into core
in order to support setting a domainname
I do not think yp-tools is really eligible to go to [core]: strictly- speaking, it is not required to either boot up the computer or connect to the Internet.
However, it can perfectly well be made an optdepends of initscripts while staying in [extra]; this is probably the way to go since yp-tools is not of use to everybody.
As long as its kosher to have an optdepend lower in the dep tree. I agree that its certainly not the majority use case.
A [core] package can have an optdepends on a package in [extra]. No-one objected when I did it for links. Other packages might do it too.
