RFS: libnet-ip-perl

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a sponsor to upload the new libnet-ip-perl package
which is available at http://www.mathgen.ch/debian/unstable

Here is an excerpt of the ITP I filled a few days ago (Bug#209349) :

* Package name    : libnet-ip-perl
  Version         : 1.20
  Upstream Author : Manuel Valente <manuel@ripe.net>
* URL             :
* License         : GPL or Artistic
  Description     : Perl extension for manipulating IPv4/IPv6 addresses

 This package contains the Net::IP module, which provides functions
 to deal with IPv4/IPv6 addresses. The module can be used as a class,
 allowing the user to instantiate IP objects, which can be single IP
 addresses, prefixes, or ranges of addresses. There is also a procedural
 way of accessing most of the functions. Most subroutines can take either
 IPv4 or IPv6 addresses transparently.

This is a very simple piece of software, and the package is lintian clean,
so it shouldn't pose any problem. Upstream has been contacted and is happy
about the package. My main motivation for packaging this module and wanting
to add it to the Debian archive is that it is a dependency of the next
version of the w3c-markup-validator package that I am also maintaining.

Many thanks in advance to any volunteer !
