I don't really have good news though. I took a look and first, it seems that
the git commit entries aren't really good. git log --format=oneline is barely
readable, for example.

For the commit contents:

1aa409a5 (mass plugin enable): NACK again; I won't enable that many stuff (and
especially not in one go)
d83c243b (duplicheck disable): one good reason for the NACK just above: it's
not enabled in Debian, you just enabled it in 1aa409a5 :)
766d4f0d (ha disable): not really sure; it's way easier to have a custom
kernel than a custom strongSwan
85150f06 (kernel-libipsec enable): for reference, this is #739641 and I'm
still not sure I like it. I might pick it but end up disabling it before
a587dc11 (TNC move): I might pick this one because TNC is pretty standalone
per-se and it might make sense to split it, but really that's a lot of new
binary packages.
7629c11a7 (test-vectors move): NACK, what's the justification? Also it'll need
some breaks/replaces
f9e7f9007 (CCN move): NACK, what's the justification? Also, the break/replace
have the ubuntu version in them, which is wrong for Debian.
13300d3bf (libstrongswan.install reorder): ACK, I could pick it if there was
an isolated changelog entry with it
4fe0861e2 (kernel-netlink conffiles): NACK, these files are installed only on
Linux and thus the handling is done in debian/rules
76535cba5 (libfast disable): Should be ok, if I have an isolated changelog
entry for this
8dbf648b7 (libcharon-standard-plugin): I can understand the rationale (plugins
for common password-based mobile VPN setup), but I don't really like it. I
don't really like adding a new binary package, and the name is definitely not
good. Also, as far as I understand it, the plugins are useful when you're
actually configuring a client/roadwarrior to imitate a mobile client with its
limitations. I don't think it's a good thing to do, I'd prefer simplifying the
secure uses cases, like pubkeys-based ones.
9b5769771 (changelog update): NACK for obvious reason, I'd need isolated
changes to the changelog (although obviously it's not simple to cherry-pick
them either, I think I prefer it that way).

Regards, and again thanks for the work you do.
