RFS: mz

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "mz".

* Package name    : mz
  Version         : 0.33.2-1
  Upstream Author : Herbert Haas <herbert@perihel.at>
* URL             : http://www.perihel.at/sec/mz/
* License         : GPL-2
  Section         : net

It builds these binary packages:
mz - versatile packet creation and network traffic generation tool

Long Description:
 mausezahn (mz) is a fast traffic generator written in C which allows you to
 send nearly every possible and impossible packet. It is mainly used to test
 VoIP or multicast networks but also for security audits to check whether
 your systems are hardened enough for specific attacks.
 Mausezahn can be used for example:
  * as traffic generator (e.g. to stress multicast networks);
  * to precisely measure jitter (delay variations) between two hosts
    (e.g. for VoIP-SLA verification);
  * as didactical tool during a datacom lecture or for lab exercises;
  * for penetration testing of firewalls and IDS;
  * for DoS attacks on networks (for audit purposes of course);
  * to find bugs in network software or appliances;
  * for reconnaissance attacks using ping sweeps and port scans;
  * to test network behaviour under strange circumstances (stress test, 
    malformed packets, ...).

The package appears to be lintian clean.

Please check ITP for a resume about my work with upstream author which
led to a new mausezahn release more suitable for Debian packaging.

The upload would fix these bugs: 494389 (ITP).

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mz
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
  main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mz/mz_0.33.2-1.dsc

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