Bug#123507: O: tcpreplay -- Tool to replay saved tcpdump files at arbitrary speeds

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of tcpreplay, Raphael Bossek <bossekr@debian.org>,
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.

Description: Tool to replay saved tcpdump files at arbitrary speeds
 Tcpreplay is aimed at testing the performance of a NIDS by
 replaying real background network traffic in which to hide
 attacks. Tcpreplay allows you to control the speed at which the
 traffic is replayed, and can replay arbitrary tcpdump traces. Unlike
 programmatically-generated artificial traffic which doesn't
 exercise the application/protocol inspection that a NIDS performs,
 and doesn't reproduce the real-world anomalies that appear on
 production networks (asymmetric routes, traffic bursts/lulls,
 fragmentation, retransmissions, etc.), tcpreplay allows for exact
 replication of real traffic seen on real networks.

[*] 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.
