Remaining TODOs:
  - drop libfastcgi, clearsilver-dev builddeps and plugins

I'm not saying this to rush you or anything, but feature freeze is next week. Do you think you will have time to finish that by then?

I'm really hoping so, but planning for the FFE just in case =)

I just finished up a dep8 on strongswan, and I'm fairly confident that the package Depends don't bring in anything that's not already in main 
(in the MIR[1], one of the issues raised was things like the plugin-unbound which linked libunbound, etc) In the re-organization for the merge
those extra dependencies are part of the libstrongswan-extra-plugins/libcharon-extra-plugins packages, which are only Suggests.

Otherwise it will add a bit of work to document the feature changes and file a Feature Freeze Exception bug; though I would not expect it to be too much a problem to approve.


Let me know when you need sponsoring to upload; I'll be happy to review it.

Excellent!  Thanks.
