Bug#751909: ITP: libasr -- asynchronous DNS resolver

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ryan Kavanagh <rak@debian.org>

* Package name    : libasr
  Version         : Git
  Upstream Author : Eric Faurot and others
* URL             : https://github.com/OpenSMTPD/libasr
* License         : ISC
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : asynchronous DNS resolver

libasr provides a simple interface for asynchronous address resolution
and nameserver querying. It should be used in place of the classical
resolver functions of libc when blocking is not desirable. libasr is
thread-safe and lock-free internally except for the two atypical use
cases listed in asr_run(3).


This library has until now been used internally by OpenSMTPD.
OpenSMTPD's upstream authors have decided that it "is now mature enough
that we want it to go fly its own way" and have split it off into a
standalone library on which opensmtpd will depend. I intend to package
this once the first release is made.

Best wishes,
