I have tried openswan yesterday and it seems to be able to communicate

It does. I've tried :) As long as you don't need AES right now with
KLIPS, it should provide everything that freeswan did, but without the
Go ahead. I hope that openswan sucks less than freeswan and the
native 2.6 stuff.
The good thing is: it actually shouldn't be necessary. Most of the
Debian packaging is already included in upstream 2.1.4, so I will mostly
do compiles, uploads, and send patches their way whenever I fix bugs in
or enhance the Debian packaging stuff. There is already a discussion
about a Debian IPSec mailing list going on.
May I suggest creating a pkg-openswan project on alioth, along with a
-devel mailing list?
