Package: cipe-source
Severity: grave

The cipe-source does works with any kernel supported by debian.

The latest upstream version (1.6.0) does not works too (last code
update was January 2002 because developer themself gave up the project
since cipe has no real reason to continue)

OpenVPN is more simple in config, uses existing kernel modules
(tun/tap modules), and the link is more reliable. On top of that
OpenVPN does not have "by design" weaknesses like the cipe protocol

Due to very low popcon I think there is no reason to keep this
software in debian.
