Bug#919637: RFS: elinks/0.13~20190114-1 [ITA]

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal


 I am adopting elinks. I have worked on the fork that Moritz has 
 mentioned: https://github.com/rkd77/felinks
 I have emailed previous upstream maintainers,asking them if they are 
 still maintaining elinks. Two emails bounced back, and I still got no 
 reply from the others.
 Anyways, this upload is targetting experimental, as I have enabled 
 several features like Bittorrent and Javascript.

This upload fixes the following bugs
#740981 (normal): elinks: doesn't check if hostname matches certificate's CN/SAN (CWE-297)
#757631 (normal): elinks: HTML5 source element display missing
#797931 (normal): elinks: Does not support SSL rehandshakes
#797934 (wishlist): elinks: Support for SSL authentication using client certs
#797968 (wishlist): elinks: Please add support for TLS SNI
#856852 (normal): cert_verify is disabled by default
#866015 (important): elinks: SSL error with some websites
#879539 (minor): elinks: contains code related to gnutls pgp supprt
#891575 (important): elinks: CVE-2012-6709
#917406 (normal): ITA: elinks -- advanced text-mode WWW browser
