Bug Description


libmemcached has been in universe since karmic.


Most language bindings and high performance applications link to libmemcached for the advanced features it offers such as binary protocol support and consistent hashing.

We have identified it as a necessary component in main as part of our blueprint to improve "web 2.0" application support in maverick:



This library has no known security issues.

Quality assurance:

There are no open bugs or anticipated QA problems.

UI standards:



memcached is not in main, but has an open MIR for maverick as well.
