Bug#389394: O: netenv -- Configure your system for different network environments

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I hereby orphan netenv.  I do no longer use it, and my limited time does
not allow properly maintaining it.

It's unique feature, compared to other packages for managing a laptop in
different network enviroments, is that it does not at all try to detect
anything automatically:  All is in the hands of the person sitting at
the keyboard while booting.

Because of this unique feature, I think it deserves being maintained.
It's completely written in shell (bash, actually).  Upstream exists and
responds to e-mail (with long delays), but upstream development is very
slow - there are simply not many improvements to make.  Some
Debian-specific improvements I made, however, where rejected upstream,
so there are some differences in how the script acts.  The new
maintainer should be willing to maintain these parts, too.
