        There are many private networks which are not even physcaly connected to the public network.
        If they will stop provide debuginfo packages it will be yet another reason to move away from RH.

        And do not mention that OS like Solaris does not need any dist debuinfo resources to diagnose issues to the level allowing support to figure out what is wrong.

          ...except that the final production release will be taken over by Lennart Poettering and rolled out ad `systemd-debuginfod`.

            Such private networks typically use a proxy to use the resources they want from outside their private network. This doesn't change anything for them given this is optional anyway

              Thre are many networs which are phisically not connected to public network.

                Yeah, a similar flavour but debuginfod is more complex & ambitious in some ways. Thanks for bringing our attention to it!

                  There is no plan to stop providing debuginfo packages. If anything, debuginfod makes it easier to operate in a private network, because if you can transfer the debuginfo packages to an internal server, you can run your own debuginfod server against that set of rpms, and then all your internal machines can get at it. It's designed so that you can run servers for yourself, your team, your org ... and still federate among them or to distros.

                    Yes, you already said that. What is your point?
