libdumbnet provides a simplified, portable interface to several low-level
networking routines, including
* network address manipulation
* kernel arp(4) cache and route(4) table lookup and manipulation
* network firewalling (Ip filter, ipfw, ipchains, pdf, ...)
* network interface lookup and manipulation
* raw IP packet and Ethernet frame transmission
libdumbnet is known as libdnet in other distributions, but was renamed
in Debian in favour of the older DECnet library 'libdnet'.
This package contains the static library and the C header files.

* Restore lost symlink in the -dev package.
Closes: #542972.
* Provide dumbnet-config again, provide the old name 'dnet-config'
as a symlink, and make it print the correct -l parameter (i.e.
include it into the changed files of the 01rename_library patch).
Closes: #543050.
* Write a terse manpage for dumbnet-config.
* Bump Standards Version to 3.8.3.
* Add a README.source file.

* kfreebsd has <stropts.h>, too, so the ./configure check to decide
between tun-solaris and tun-bsd is bogus. For the time being patch
./ to drop that test and choose tun-bsd right away.
2009-07-25 - Jan Christoph Nordholz <>
libdumbnet (1.12-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version.
* Update upstream location in all Debian files, but do not overwrite
the upstream README - add a note to README.Debian instead.

* Bump Standards Version to 3.8.2.

libdumbnet (1.11-1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
* Adopt the package. Closes: #474128.
* New upstream version.
* Completely rework the packaging. Use dpatch for patch management.
* Thoroughly revise debian/copyright.
* Accomplish the Debian-specific library renaming by modifying the
.am files and rerunning the whole auto-toolchain. This is the cleanest
way to do this and produces the smallest distro diff.
-> New dpatch (script):
* Activate the python module build (closes: #388541):
* Configure --with-python.
* Patch the .pyx code to avoid using the reserved keyword 'type' as a
mundane identifier.

* Patch the python Makefile to build against all current python versions.
-> New dpatch: 03build_all_python_versions
* Use debhelper v7.
