Re: Bug#518869: ITP: shorewall6 -- Shoreline Firewall (IPv6 version), netfilter configurator

Uh? Can you please explain?

Even though I'm not following the upstream evolution I'm a user of the
shorewall package, which has IPv6 support even though disabled by
default. Why we now need a separate package now?

It needs to be a separate package, because that is the way it is distributed upstream. ie. shorewall6, with IPv6 support is very distinct from shorewall, with IPv4 support.

For more information see <http://www.shorewall.net/IPv6Support.html>.

Disclaimer: I am not involved in packaging this for Debian or upstream - just a user.
