Bug#682472: unblock: mandos/1.6.0-1

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

Please unblock package mandos

We released Mandos version 1.6.0 well in advance of the anticipated
Debian freeze, and have been using it ourselves since then, but our
sponsor did not upload it with his usual promptness.  This release has
a very nice labor-saving autodetection feature for the client side
(clients most likely won't need any configuration anymore), and no
other incompatible changes since 1.5.5, but many packaging fixes.
Also, our popcon count is rather low: 11 for mandos and 14 for
mandos-client, and about half of those are our own systems.

Could you *please* consider including this release in wheezy?  We, the
upstream and uploaders of Mandos, feel that we did everything we could
for 1.6.0 to be included in wheezy, and that we are the victims of
circumstances outside our control (viz. that our sponsor, Daniel
Baumann, was late uploading it because of his being traveling due to

This configuration-less client feature is our last nice feature we
once dreamed of being able to provide for our users; future releases
of the package will consist mainly of minor polish to other parts, but
no features are missing.  Please make our dream come true?
