Bug#123488: O: libmcrypt -- De-/Encryption Library
The current maintainer of libmcrypt, ,
is apparently not active anymore[*]. Therefore, I orphan this package
now. If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- retitle
this bug from 'O:' to 'ITA:', fix the outstanding bugs and upload a
new version with your name in the Maintainer: field and a
* New maintainer (Closes: #thisbug)
in the changelog so this bug is closed.
Some information about this package:
Binary: libmcrypt-dev, libmcrypt4
Description: De-/Encryption Library
libmcrypt is the library which implements all the algorithms and modes
found in mcrypt. It is currently under development but it seems to work
libmcrypt supports the algorithms:
BLOWFISH, TWOFISH, DES, TripleDES, 3-WAY, SAFER-sk64, SAFER-sk128, SAFER+,
LOKI97, GOST, RC2, RC6, MARS, IDEA, RIJNDAEL-128, RIJNDAEL-192, SERPENT,
RIJNDAEL-256, CAST-128 (known as CAST5), CAST-256, ARCFOUR and WAKE.
Block algorithms can be used in:
CBC, ECB, CFB and OFB (8 bit and n bit, where n is the size of the
algorithm's block length).
More information can be found at the libmcrypt homepage
[*] Justification: the maintainer currently has 17 open RC bugs (not
counting those fixed in NMUs). Several NMUs were done, at least two
packages (pwlib, usbview) have already been hihacked, the maintainer
does not respond to mails.
Justification why this particular package has been orphaned by me now:
open grave bug.
