ncap is a network capture library like libpcap (on which it is based)
and tcpdump. It produces binary data in its own ncap format, which can
be stored in a dump file or transmitted over a UDP socket. Unlike
libpcap, it discards data link headers and only supports IPv4 and IPv6
packets, but it can perform reassembly of IP datagrams.
This package contains the Python bindings.

ncap (1.9.2-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* QA upload.
* Reset the maintainer to Debian QA Group to match the fact that
the package is now orphaned (see #839610).
* Set Rules-Requires-Root (R³) to no as ncap does not rely on
(fake)root for building the binary packages.
* Add "pyncap/build/" to debian/clean to ensure that the source
can build twice in a row.
* Rewrite debian rules to avoid obsolete manual control sequence
parameters in dh.
* Bump debhelper compat to 11.
- Install libraries in Multi-Arch paths.
* Mark libncap44 Multi-Arch same now.
* Drop redundant fields and build-dependencies in d/control.
* Explicitly declare source format to be 1.0.
* Run wrap-and-sort on d/control to sort the (build-)dependencies.
