This package is based on ares 1.1.1 (written by Greg Hudson). Daniel Stenberg
decided to fork and release a separate project since the original ares author
didn't want the improvements that were vital for our use of it.
This package is dubbed 'c-ares' since Daniel wanted this for use within the
curl project (hence the letter C) and it makes a nice pun. c-ares is not API
compatible with ares: a new name makes that more obvious to the public.
The original libares was distributed at
ftp://athena-dist.mit.edu:pub/ATHENA/ares (which seems to not be alive
anymore). A local copy of the original ares package is kept here:
