  Description     : An accurate, machine-readable list of domain name suffixes

This package provides a machine-readable list of domain name suffixes
that accept public registration.  Each suffix represents the part of a
domain name which is not under the control of the individual
registrant, which makes the list useful for grouping cookies, deciding
same-origin policies, collating spam, and other activities.


Having this list maintained directly in debian will make it easier for
debian packages to reliably refer to public suffixes; it is similar in
nature to the tzdata and geoip-database.
