openswan freeze exception

Dear release team,

Unfortunately, we (Harald Jenny, the real maintainer of openswan for the past 6 months or so, and me, the one who is only doing uploads) missed the freeze deadline due to various issues. However, we feel that the version of openswan that is now in experimental (and which we plan to upload to unstable as soon as you agree to it) is indeed needed in Wheezy, because it fixes a few important bugs concerning compatibility with mobile clients such as iOS and Android devices particularly in combination with NAT traversal (which most mobile devices will have to go through). Unfortunately, fixing these bugs requires a new upstream version with a few cherry-picked patches. Internal testing indicates that it is stable and does not introduce any regressions.

Would you consider openswan for a freeze exception at this time?

best regards,
