I shared another query a while ago. @StephenKitt shared and I quote
there's no reason for it to recommend networking tools (considering recommendations as defined in Debian Policy), and removing the recommendation is safe because default installations still end up with ifupdown installed. Cleaning such dependencies up will simplify possible future switches to other default tools. -Stephen Kitt
Now while I can understand that, what is needed to know are possible replacements. For instance it has removed three services which are essential to me. I do understand that they will be installed as default but still -
services: removed ssh (22/udp).
services: removed http (80/udp), https (443/udp).
While we do hope that web server providers will make https a default offering either with tying up with multiple certificate providers at low-cost or something, as of now it's upto the site creator to do the way s/he wants to set up. Don't see that changing soon.
Similarly I don't know anything better than ssh ?

I am ok with the changes being proposed, just need to know what changes (if any) are going to become defaults so I can work that out.
