  Description     : QuickTun is a simple VPN tunnel relying on NaCl library

QuickTun is probably the simplest VPN tunnel software ever, yet it's
very secure. It relies on the NaCl encryption library by D. J.
Bernstein.

QuickTun uses the curve25519xsalsa20poly1305 crypto-box functionality of
the NaCl library for secure public-key encryption.

And that's about all QuickTun does; encrypting and sending data. No
fancy features which would only lead to bloating the binary. In fact,
QuickTun itself has only a few hundred lines of pure C code, making it
dead simple to maintain, analyze, debug and fix.

What license is that?  Looking at the source code files, they have
headers like the one below.  It seems BSD-like to me.

Looking at this page:

http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/

The link for "BSD-2-clause" is to:

http://spdx.org/licenses/BSD-2-Clause

That text looks quite similar to the license text above, so I would
recommend 'License: BSD-2-clause'.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of quicktun back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting quicktun, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 655348 ITP: quicktun -- QuickTun is a simple VPN tunnel relying on NaCl library
 owner 655348 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <655348@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
