Description Christopher Browne 2010-12-03 12:44:33 UTC

Some minimal SNMP functionality was added in 2005.  It remains untouched since, and requires --with-netsnmp option to ./Configure, which was, and still is, marked as **EXPERIMENTAL**

It does not presently seem to work, based on trying a build with it turned on, which fails to compile.

Proposed: That it be removed.
Comment 1 Steve Singer 2010-12-03 13:03:14 UTC
Based on the fact that

1) The feature is marked as experimental (people had been warned)
2) It doesn't seem to compile.  

I agree we should remove this code in a future major version.
