Please find attached a new package for rp-pppoe 3.11. Based on the work by Lee (Debian bug report 602861), the package now has a patches directory with split patches.

I have put the following files into the rp-pppoe.tar.gz:

It looks pretty good, but I'm not entirely confident in including such a large patch (re. PPPoE Intermediate Agent support) considering there hasn't been any upstream review yet.

To ease review in the future, could you please provide the changes as a debdiff or a bzr merge proposal instead? Thanks!

@Mathieu: if you prefer, I can remove the "PPPoE Intermediate Agent" patch. But is the rest okay for you?

Unless you can make a strong case for having this patch in Ubuntu, I think it'd be best not to deviate so much from upstream.
