If its upstream is completely dead, it has bad code and it has a
replacement, I would still go to treeclean it

But if it provides the only means to netboot certain hardware, then you
might think twice.

Here it is:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425362

And actually Robin K. who submitted the overflow bug I fixed,
pointed out that there _are_ cases where hpa doesn't work but
netkit does, so I've downgraded the removal to a simple masking for
bad code.

I guess we'll wait a bit more before removing this, in the mean time
though I don't really feel happy with leaving it unmasked so it'll
stay as it is.

I have several ubiquity routerstations (the hardware in questions) and
I've asked Robin Kauffman to report the steps to reproduce in the bug.
I'll try to get to the bottom of why tftp-hpa doesn't work.

I thought it has a replacement, if not, ok to keep

It has a replacement for probably 95% of its users; hopefully Robin
and Anthony can figure out why those 5% (random number of course) is
not able to use tftp-hpa; once we do that it should be safe to remove.
I'll keep it monitored till then. And masked of course, as we don't
want to risk issues, especially security issues, due to that.
