Does it really matter when it's so trivial to port from upstream?
Nokia has to make choices on what gets included or not - telnet isn't
crucial to the software Nokia delivers, so it isn't included.

However, it has taken me an XML file, smaller than the paragraph
above, to tell mud[1] to take Debian stable's telnet package and
upload it to Extras(-devel for now[2]).

Let me know of any problems, or - if none - I'll promote it to Extras.

Hope that helps,

    go with the above and a change to the maintainer line.
