QA information


  1. I'm ready to take over maintenance of this package.
    Pawel Krawczyk at Nov. 7, 2022, 10:06 p.m.
  2. This does not have a chance of entering Debian again if you do not provide the latest version and do not fix the reason for its removal:
    Also, you would have to file an ITP that justifies reintroducing this package.

  3. The reasons for package removal as I understand were the following:
    RoQA; python2-only; orphaned; dead upstream; low popcon
    There have been new releases from upstream (up to 4.0.29) which haven't been packaged after the package was orphaned in Debian, and I can happily upgrade up to the latest version. The Python script in question has been maintained separately, and a Python3 version is available. There were no other issues with the C code and I have imported it into GitHub for security scanning and happy to take over its basic maintenance. The primary reason to have it is that it's the only TACACS+ server software available in Debian.

  4. Then file and own an ITP and reference it in the changelog.

  5. Please close #1024129 via the changelog. Make yourself the maintainer and use -1 Debian revision.
