  Description     : PPP Gatekeeper manages and load balances main, redundant and failover PPP connections

 PPP Gatekeeper is a daemon that manages PPPOE connections supporting
 various levels of redundancy and failover.
 Traffic can be routed using round-robin and random strategies over links
 of similar priority. Static IP route lists can also be provided for specific
 routing purposes. DNS can also be load balanced over multiple links.

 - why is this package useful/relevant?

 This package is useful because it allows one to configure multiple PPP
 connections and actively load balance default/static routing and DNS
 over these links. It also allows failover connections to be established
 which will then receive the relevant routing table(s) when the main link(s)
 go down. It is extremely useful for those who have multiple DSL lines or
 which want to use something like 3G or other methods as a backup should
 the main link go down.

 - how do you plan to maintain it?

 I am the upstream and plan to maintain it using a separate git project
 on our gitlab system. https://gitlab.devlabs.linuxassist.net

 I have multiple paid staff who are employed to maintain the software
 package and for whom I will accept MR's for.

 I will handle the packaging myself and uploading for the sponsor.

 - looking for co-maintainers? do you need a sponsor?

 I do need a sponsor, ref https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=751009
