  That's something Debian needs to fix, unfortunately.  The previous debian maintainer disappeared, and no one else has stepped up to maintain the package.

  But Debian has 2-3 *other* RADIUS servers, each of which is 10+ years old... and hasn't been *maintained* for 10+ years.

  Why?  Just... why?

  We still need a Debian maintainer for FreeRADIUS.  And we need to convince Debian to stop shipping crappy software that is 10+ years old, when better software exists.
