Bug#502305: ITP: ulogd2 -- The Netfilter Userspace Logging Daemon, version 2

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Pierre Chifflier <pollux@debian.org>

* Package name    : ulogd2
  Version         : 2.0.0beta2
  Upstream Author : Harald Welte and netfilter team
* URL             : http://www.netfilter.org/projects/ulogd/

  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : The Netfilter Userspace Logging Daemon, version 2

 ulogd is a daemon that listens for Netlink packets generated by iptables's
 ULOG and NFLOG target, using ibnetfilter_log and libnetfilter_conntrack.
 Basically, it's a replacement for syslog for logging packets,
 and does a much better job - it logs to files, pcap files, MySQL, PostgreSQL,
 SQLite 3 and soon will be able to log remotely.
 MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite 3 support is in separate packages, called
 ulogd-mysql, ulogd-pgsql and ulogd-sqlite3 respectively. pcap file support
 is in package called ulogd-pcap.

Ulogd is already packaged in Debian, but I think ulogd2 should be proposed as
a separate package, because:
- they are completely different projects, supporting different targets (NFLOG)
  or features (connection tracking)
- ulogd is still the stable daemon, for some time I think
- some applications are based on version 1, and a transition to v2 require
  many changes
- both can be installed at the same time
- packages for ulogd2 will be completely different, for ex. using dbconfig
