FWIW, I am not a DD, so you have no hope of having this uploaded by me. :)
I also do not have an IPv6 network to test it on.

Quick tips:

. did you know about dh_installexamples?

. it might be nice to strip the outdated "Installation" section from
  the README at build time, like this:

   sed '/Installation/, /textproc/ d' README >debian/README
   dh_installdocs debian/README

. is it important to say

	This manual page was written for the Debian
	distribution because the original program does not
	have a manual page.

  so early in the ramond.8 page?  If it were me, I'd not mention it
  at all; the COPYRIGHT section already says this was written for

The packaging is very clean.  Thanks for a pleasant read.
