Bug#123534: O: bing -- Empirical stochastic bandwidth tester
The current maintainer of bing, Michael Shields
<email@example.com>, has orphaned this package. 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:
Maintainer: Michael Shields <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1)
Description: Empirical stochastic bandwidth tester
Bing is a point-to-point bandwidth measurement tool (hence the 'b'),
based on ping.
Bing determines the real (raw, as opposed to available or average)
throughput on a link by measuring ICMP echo requests' roundtrip times
for different packet sizes at each end of the link.

IIRC Mike agreed to it being orphaned months ago... someone just has to
upload it with Debian QA Group <firstname.lastname@example.org> in the Maintainer:
