> Drak3d : completly unnecessary today for Compiz (and Metisse seems to be
on-stop actually, so no reason to maintain especially for it now)
DrakDisk : partitionmanager seems to be not ready, not complete actually.
gparted and Palimpsest are excellent (especially palimpsest) but DiskDrak
stay the g best tool i know today
DrakGuard : Absolutly wonderfull, a real "plus-value".
Drakups : unnecessary today ?
Drakfirewall : OK, but maybe integer outpout controll too is a good idea ?
(and provide effortless arptables and ebtables looks ambitious ?)
DrakSambaShare : initially a community addon from Mr Ginies (it think?) :
really excellent tool too. But maybe unnecessary today (as draknfs) because
desktop integration (and servers have admin)
Drakbackup and Draksnapshoot : please remove
DrakFax :  unnecessary today (desktop integration)
Drakmenustyle : deprecated
Drackoo : unnecessary today (libreoffice integration)
Drakpxelinux : too strict on paths to be really used by someone who knows
nothing about pxe and mdk/mdv/mga. Please remove.
Drakvirt : superseeded by Redhat tool.
Draknet* : please keep it. Best tool today (better than networkmanager for
many thinks, and conman seems to be not finished today.) Ambitious to have a
knetwaorkmanager port for draknet* ?

Mes two cents.
