A bit of warning: this is the first release and I don't thinks it is
enough stable to be officially released.
Furthermore, I propose to keep the name convention: netkit and
netkit-ng: a lot of people want to keep the old netkit as it is (stable,
well tested, support for MPLS). Thus I think having two official
distributions is the best approach.
Anyway thnaks for your feedback.
