Xinetd Supported?


I’d like to clarify a point about a particular package. It is the package concerning Xinetd, I thought that xinetd was no longer supported by the publisher, isn’t it deprecated ?

However, we can find version in the Almalinux 8.x packages, does this imply that the patching (security) of the solution is assured until the end of life of almalinux 8, some sort of backporting ?

On the other hand, the package is not present on AlmaLinux 9 ? does it means xinetd shouldn’t be used on that version ?

Systemd Didn’t yet replaced xinetd on alamlinux 8 ?

In Advance, thank you for your response.

Best regards,
