The package hasn't been orphaned, but I as the only upstream author
asked for it to not enter.. lenny (!) because I thought I implement
some different API for it.  But in recent years I haven't done a
thing about it (except of accepting some patches which implements
support for additional RR types, and fixing bugs in these patches).

#493599 - while most technical points are gone now, one point
raised there is valid: maybe there's no need to have yet another
resolver?  I dunno, I wrote it for a reason but I don't have time
to support it, and while it does not have lots of bugs, it is
missing some features, in particular it is DNSSEC support.

Besides, I'm now a debian developer, and it'd be quite a bit
silly to ask another person to package my own software for
debian... ;)


Yes I would be silly to ask an other person. But I just gave you a little help.
Jabberd2 is orphaned. I would like to adopt it. However it depends on udns and
thats why I created a package. I could ask you first, however DD's are often very
busy and I could take a little work out of their hands.

#493599. Jabberd2 only depends on the library. Also Jabberd2 wont use another
resolver in a short time [1]. So we are stuck with udns. I personally do not find
ejabberd an alternatieve because it needs tons of elang files.
