Hi Raphaël,

I asked Ondřej Surý (ondrej@debian.org, now in CC) yesterday to do the 
packaging for libidn and libidn2, especially with those CVEs in mind.
And he seems willing, so just coordinate to not do the work twice.

Background: the current maintainers are either hindered by private issues 
(Simon, simon@josefsson.org) or not enough into packaging any more to stem it 

Personally, I can only offer any help from upstream (things can be fastly done 
if you contact me or better if you open an issue on either libidn or libidn2).

I appreciate any work that you do on packaging libidn/libidn2 and if it's ok 
for you, take me out of the review process (I just know too little about 
Debian packaging to review/judge anything from you experts).

Just coordinate with Ondřej.

With Best Regards, Tim
