Done, I have rebuild the libcares source package as c-ares and this
now generates the packages libcares2 and libcares-dev (soname has gone
to 2 as its a new upstream version with API and ABI breakage).
I just managed to get the missing copyright headers included upstream
as well before the new release. So it think that is now all the issues
you raised with the package dealt with.
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
