The maintainer has not yet answered my emails regarding this which
included patches.

So considering packaging the main features besides bumping the version
include getting GNS into the system resolution process via
nsswitch.conf, starting a system peer to run the gns proxy and starting
a reduced peer for each user. Furthermore the GNS proxy should be
started and running. Check my repository for my attempt at achieving
this or use the Alpine Linux GNUnet package [1] as a reference.

Thanks! I was not working on bumping the version.

If you want to have a look at the progress check my repository [2]. Feel
free to pull in the changes for the mentioned features.


Happy hacking!
