I intend to orphan the rsh-redone package.

I no longer have time to maintain this. I am also the upstream author of
this; if you want to adopt the package, you are also welcome to take
over upstream maintainership. However, since no-one should be using RSH
in this day and age anymore, if no one is interested I will request
removal of this package.

I connect to xxx pi with linux/android using rlogin/rsh all the time.
Isn't it a basic simple functionality?
Why "should" I not be using rsh?
What could I use instead, hooking up a vt100 via an usb to RS232 interface is
not very practical?

The package description is:
Rsh-redone is a reimplementation of the remote shell clients and servers. It is written from the ground up to avoid the bugs found in the standard
 clients and servers. It also fully supports IPv6.
 This package provides rsh and rlogin.
