We have decided that I will take on maintainership and Alfredo and I
will keep in close contact for further development.
The tree at https://github.com/joukewitteveen/netcfg has seen some
fairly big changes lately, additionally fixing FS#25587 and FS#27496.
The new changes require a new PKGBUILD, which is included below (but
likely broken by Gmail). This is just for completeness to anyone

I hope to get some details on maintainership soon.
