  • Unmaintained. Contains vulnerable code and a large number of unsolved (upstream) issues. The current version is from 2004, and carries some local patches. Last upstream commits are from 2013, and involve three successive branches, the 0.7.x not having a release since 2004, and the two remaining branches never seeing a single release. The suggested alternatives are net-analyzer/{netcat,openbsd-netcat}. Removal in 30 days. Bug #601742.
