Bug#308725: ITP: dhcpv6 -- a stateful address autoconfiguration protocol for IPv6

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Adam M." <gnuman1@gmail.com>

* Package name    : dhcpv6
  Version         : 0.10
  Upstream Author : ?? Not a single one - many...
* URL             : http://dhcpv6.sourceforge.net/
* License         : Mostly BSD, some LGPL and MIT/X
  Description     : a stateful address autoconfiguration protocol for IPv6
 DHCPv6 is a stateful address autoconfiguration protocol for IPv6, a
 counterpart to IPv6 stateless address autoconfiguration protocol. It
 can either be used independently or it can coexist with its
 counterpart protocol. This protocol uses client/server mode of
 operation but can also provide support through a Relay Agent.

Current upstream does not appear to be very active. I'm not yet certain
whether I will make this a Debian package or Upstrea/Debian patch. This
depends on how much of the code can be replaced by current libc

I should get this package done within a month (so by mid-June) since I
will be doing some code reviewing and not just packaging.

- Adam
