[Drop the xrootd list explicitly to see if RT stops sending multiple copies
   of mails...]

  Hi unix-admin,

  I forgot about proofd, so I'd like to amend my request. Is it possible
to ask Redhat to add the following lines:

proofd          1093/tcp                        # ROOT PROOF daemon
proofd          1093/udp                        # ROOT PROOF daemon
rootd           1094/tcp                        # ROOT daemon
rootd           1094/udp                        # ROOT daemon

to the default /etc/services file which they distribute in RHEL? Both ports 
are registered with IANA. (Since you pay them to listen to your requests, 
hopefully they will respond!)
