RFS: mactelnet

Dear mentors,

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

* Package name    : mactelnet
  Version         : 0.3.1-1
  Upstream Author : Håkon Nessjøen <haakon.nessjoen@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/haakonnessjoen/MAC-Telnet
* License         : GPL-2 (Except md5 routines, covered by zlib license)
  Section         : net

It builds these binary packages:
 mactelnet-client - Console tools for telneting and pinging via MAC addresses
 mactelnet-server - Telnet daemon for accepting connections via MAC addresses

The upload would fix these bugs: 615823

My motivation for maintaining this package is:
As the author of the software, I am specially motivated to maintain
this package, and fix bugs immediately.
Also I am motivated to start working with maintaining more packets for
Debian, for some day to become a DD.

Some more info about the package:
 This tool can communicate over the local area network using UDP packets
 with a MAC-address as destination. You can telnet Linux machines that
 have installed mactelnet-server, or a Mikrotik RouterOS device.

 It uses Mikrotik's own proprietary protocol, connecting via UDP
packets at port 20561.

 Included in mactelnet-client are also MNDP discovery application, and
macping to ping via the mactelnet protocol.

 In the mactelnet-server package, there is a mactelnet daemon, to allow other
 mactelnet-client users, or RouterOS owners to telnet your machine via
the MAC address
 or the machine's hostname via the MNDP protocol (Mikrotik network
discovery protocol), a simplified
 version of Cisco's CDP, using UDP packets.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mactelnet
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mactelnet/mactelnet_0.3.1-1.dsc

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

Kind regards
 Håkon Nessjøen
