Re: Description: add ifenslave and vlan, needed by MAAS, required by Ante

Hi Dimitri

Both vconfig and ifenslave are wrappers around iproute2 (well, vconfig
uses the same interface as iproute2). However, what we really need from
these packages are wrappers around ifupdown. That allows defining vlan
and bond in /etc/network/interfaces.

So, it's not that much about MAAS, as it is about Ubuntu. I'm all in
favour of having these wrappers in ifupdown by default. Until then, we
need to install them.

However, I do agree that we do keep on having some archaic tools like
route, ifconfig, netstat which should be not just removed, but banned
(for providing false data).

Kind regards
