 In directory
 Log Message:
 Import Net::Frame into net/p5-Net-Frame. This package is provided in
 PR pkg/45720.
 Net::Frame is a fork of Net::Packet. The goal here was to greatly simplify
 the use of the frame crafting framework. Net::Packet does many things
 undercover, and it was difficult to document all the thingies.
 Also, Net::Packet may suffer from unease of use, because frames were assembled
 using layers stored in L2, L3, L4 and L7 attributes. Net::Frame removes all
 this, and is splitted in different modules, for those who only want to use part
 of the framework, and not whole framework.
 Finally, anyone can create a layer, and put it on his CPAN space, because of
 the modularity Net::Frame offers. For an example, see Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4
 on my CPAN space.
 Net::Frame does ship with basic layers, to start playing.
