Package: wnpp

* Package name    : python-dnslib
  Version         : 0.9.7+hg20170303

  Description     : A module to encode/decode DNS wire-format packets

 This DNS encode/decode Python module provides:
  - Support for encoding/decoding DNS packets between wire format, python
    objects, and Zone/DiG textual representation (dnslib.dns)
  - A server framework allowing the simple creation of custom DNS resolvers
    (dnslib.server) and a number of example servers created using this
  - A number of utilities for testing (dnslib.client, dnslib.proxy,

In the future this will be a build-depenedency for dkimpy and probably other
packages that need to do DNS queries as part of their test suite.

Packaging an hg snapshot because the most recent release is missing license
and copyright information needed to make it suitable for Debian.
