RFS: libnet (adopted and updated package)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version
of the package "libnet", which I'm adopting (ITA #483710).

It builds these binary packages:
libnet1    - library for the construction and handling of network packets
libnet1-dbg - debugging symbols for libnet
libnet1-dev - development files for libnet
libnet1-doc - developers documentation files for libnet

The package would go through NEW because of libnet1-dbg and libnet1-doc.

The package is not lintian clean: the upstream tarball contains CVS
directories, and I didn't want to repack it just for this reason. Otherwise, it
seems clean (unstable lintian -iI).

The upload would fix these bugs:

418249 - [PATCH] libnet_build_ntp broken in libnet 1.1.2
418975 - libnet1: Buffer overrun in libnet_pblock_coalesce
418979 - libnet1: libnet_pblock_coalesce() leaks on error
457506 - libnet: FTBFS on hurd-i386
497909 - patch needed for dhcp_probe

These bugs are also blocking other bugs:

418975 > 417835: heartbeat: IPv6addr fails on etch
497909 > 495959: RFP: dhcp_probe -- Discover rogue DHCP-servers on your lan

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:


I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
 David Paleino
