Default Bug#658434: ITP: miniupnpd -- daemon providing UPnP Internet Gateway Device (IGD) services

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Thomas Goirand <zigo@debian.org>

* Package name : miniupnpd
Version : 1.6.20120121
Upstream Author : Thomas Bernard <miniupnp@free.fr>
* URL : http://miniupnp.free.fr/
* License : BSD
Programming Lang: C
Description : daemon providing UPnP Internet Gateway Device (IGD) services

MiniUPnPd is a small daemon providing UPnP Internet Gateway Device (IGD)
services to your network. UPnP and NAT-PMP are used to improve internet
connectivity for devices behind a NAT router. Any peer to peer network
application such as games, IM, etc. can benefit from a NAT router supporting
UPnP and/or NAT-PMP. For example the latest generation Microsoft XBOX 360 and
Sony Playstation 3 game machines use UPnP commands to enable the online play
with the XBOX Live service and the Playstation Network. It has been reported
that MiniUPnPd is correctly working with the two consoles.

Note that I've been waiting quite a while until it's finally possible to
package this software. Recent inclusion of (now embedded) kernel headers
for iptables, which are still not packaged in Debian, in the upstream
sources, makes it possible to finally compile this software in Debian,
while this has been possible for years in other distributions. I don't
want to relaunch a controverse, so please do not start a troll here,
but I'd still prefer if these were in iptables-dev. It seems there's
no choice, so I agree with upstream decision.
