	I have put together what I have done so far on updating the netsaint packages to the newly released nagios software. A tarball is available at
	I have put together a framework for building individual plugin components from the plugins source as they work. They tend to depend on other large pieces of software such as snmp, pgsql samba etc. Consequently, there are many packages so an end user only has to build what they want. This could be viewed as good or bad.
	Unfortunately my time has been ripped out of my hands for the next month (or two) for a large financial system upgrade, hence I put together what I have done so far so others can use and hopefully add to the package. The nagios base package is done and tested. A rc.d script should be created. The nagios plugins base package is done. The nagios plugins snmp package has been upgraded to use net-snmp but has had only very limited testing. The nagios ldap, pgsql and mysql plugins have been created but really untested. They compile and install clean, and include previous patches but are not known to work as I have no servers to test on. I would have liked to spend more time on these. Hopefully others can finish them off. (That's what cvs is for isn't it?).
	nagios-base:	working and tested. requires rc.d script
	nagios-plugins:	working and tested.
	nagios-plugins-snmp:	working and small amount of testing
	nagios-plugins-ldap:	compiles/installs, untested 
	nagios-plugins-mysql:	compiles/installs, untested 
	nagios-plugins-pgsql:	compiles/installs, untested 
The last three packages, pgsql, mysql and ldap should probably be marked as broken :-(
	This means the retirement of the netsaint packages and import of nagios.

The interest and support of other keen developers to finish off what is a really handly and popular network monitor.
