Thanks Lukas!

There are some points that I feel could be worth discussing (besides TLS…):

1) Would linux-mptcp [1] have its place in [community]?  From what I read
   about linux-zen and linux-grsec [2], there does not seem to be strong
   objections, especially since most (or even all?) third-party kernel
   modules now use DKMS.

2) Some dependencies of my packages are orphaned in [community], such as
   msgpack-c [3].  As a TU, I guess it would make sense to adopt them.

3) ring-daemon requires non-released versions of restbed [4] and asio [5].
   Is it better to wait for upstream to release a version of these libs,
   or is it acceptable to package a snapshot in [community]?
