Security issue ?Ah yes, security is not the first target for Fossil.
I was told by a security computer specialist that we should NEVER use xinetd, 
xinitd or something related...Of course, for the Fossil team, people I do know 
are not good enough ...

:-D (One day I was wondering if downloading Fossil is safe... I've got my 
response now. This is why I laugh out loud)
The only good news is that someone dare to say there is an issue.You should 
thank him.
Pray that your system was/is not hacked ...

Best Regards

FWIW, was also down (since it is on the same machine and
uses the same xinetd process to respond to requests, but nobody bother
to report that....
