Bug#601971: unblock: liboauth/0.9.1-1

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package liboauth

This package is blocking major bugs in twitter clients, an example of such a bug is bug #588235 .
Twitter recently dropped support for Basic Auth and now all twitter clients are forced to use OAuth to
authenticate to Twitter. libOAuth is the ONLY OAuth 1.0 library written in C, and hence all Twitter clients
written in C need this.
Without this package, BTI and other twitter clients will not function in squeeze, as they would not be able
to authenticate with Twitter.

libOAuth was accepted very recently into Debian Unstable, and that is why it isn't in squeeze yet.
