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?
