Bug#1032236: ITP: netatalk2 -- File server for Macintosh and Apple II clients

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Markstedt <markstedt@gmail.com>
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-devel@lists.debian.org, markstedt@gmail.com

* Package name    : netatalk2
  Version         : 2.2.8
  Upstream Author : The Netatalk Team <netatalk-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>
* URL             : https://netatalk.sourceforge.io

  Description     : File server for Macintosh and Apple II clients

Netatalk 2 is a file server for Macintosh and Apple II clients which
implements the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) with support for TCP (DSI)
and AppleTalk (DDP) networking layers.

It also supplies a PAP compliant printer server (papd), a time server
(timelord), and an Apple II netboot server (a2boot). In addition, a
suite of tools for classic Mac file formats, AppleTalk networking, and
PostScript printing is included.

Unlike Netatalk 3, it retains the AppleTalk network layer, which allows
it to server as a bridge between older Mac and Apple II clients, with
the latest macOS clients.

I intend to leverage the existing pkg-netatalk-devel team for
maintaining the package, including volunteering my own effort.
