From a quick dh-make-perl run:

Needs the following modules for which there are no debian packages available:
 - Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv6
 - Net::Libdnet6
 - Net::Frame::Dump
 - Net::Frame::Layer::IPv6
 - Net::Frame::Simple

Seems this will be a bigger project ...


Cheers,
gregor

Agreed, and having played around with the module more, I no longer think
it is worth it to package it for Debian. My experience with it has not
been great. It seems to be a set of packages with somewhat arbitrary
divisions, and does not interface with other perl modules nicely.

Assuming no one else thinks it's a good idea to package it, I think this
RFP can be closed. 

Thanks,
Simon

Alright, thanks for the further information.
