I can remember we talked about replacing our package ipv6-toolkit with the one from debian ipv6toolkit, but that one was outdated
We could also rename our package for now to avoid this issue
What do you think @sbrun?

I was thinking that the update in Debian would happen quickly but the Debian maintainer is waiting for a new upstream release for several months now. I pinged upstream today.

In the meantime I will modify the Kali package.
