Description Ragas 2010-08-17 23:11:53 UTC
I would like to have netcat-openbsd in Portage since it offers some nice proxy features which other netcats miss. right now I'm using the ebuild from bug #237277. (no problems with that so far)

Reproducible: Always

I'd like to see the ebuild to be included in the main tree two. I need the good proxy feature from netcat-openbsd.

Created attachment 322360 [details]

Here is a suggested ebuild...most of the credit goes to Luca Pasquali, but I've added some trivial updates.
