  1. Why do you upload this when there is a kernel implementation and therefore this package was already removed?

  2. SCTPLIB (package sctplib) is a user-space implementation, tunnelling SCTP over UDP by default, i.e. co-existing with kernel SCTP. This makes it particularly simple to make modifications to SCTP without need to modify the kernel. Unlike the other user-space implementation libusrsctp, the SocketAPI (this package) on top of SCTPLIB provides a full BSD-style sockets API. That is, it allows to build and run "normal" BSD socket applications with user-space SCTP. This is the main purpose for using SCTPLIB/SocketAPI.
