Fwd: radiusclient-ng in Debian

I just opened this report against radiusclient-ng in Debian (see below),
can anybody else comment on the situation, in particular, for
compatibility?  Is there any urgency for Debian to update to the new
client code?

I think the wiki page referenced below is not up to date, it refers to a
CVS repository but it appears that the client code is not in github

Also, is anybody aware of C++ wrappers for this code or a C++ alternative?

Package: libradiusclient-ng2
Version: 0.5.6-1.1
Severity: normal

I've just read through the wiki at:

If I understand correctly,

a) freeradius-client is the continuation of radiusclient-ng (which was
the continuation of a previous project)

b) it is not a fork of the previous projects

c) it should be compatible (or almost compatible) with code that was
built for radiusclient-ng

d) it is NOT built from the main FreeRADIUS source tree or repository,
it is built from a standalone repository

Therefore, this leaves me feeling that Debian should drop the
libradiusclient-ng2 package and distribute FreeRADIUS client instead and
there will be no significant side-effects of doing so.
