Another package into debian experimental thanks to @vagrantc of @reproducible_builds . 🎉🙏

lcrq provides Forward Error Correction via raptorq fountain codes.

@dentangle @librecast @vagrantc @reproducible_builds wow, that’s awesome news! We might finally have an avenue to optimize the FEC code in Freenet! (ideal would be 200% redundancy, not 100%,¹ but the patents on raptor codes prevented that and I did not notice the waiver)

¹: draketo.de/light/english/freen

@emacsen forward error correction: not replacing a broken chunk by uploading exactly that, but uploading parity information so missing blocks can be reconstructed.
