I vote for removing acf-shorewall from the 3.1 release. I do not have intentions of making it work with shorewall (instead of with shorewall-shell). I would recommend people switch to awall and acf-awall.

acf-shorewall is still using the old shell implementation of shorewall
(shorewall-shell). It has not been ported to shorewall perl yet.

apk del shorewall
apk add acf-shorewall

should pull in the proper deps.

That said, support for shorewall-shell is completely dropped in v3.1 so
it might be an idea to test acf-shorewall for v3.1 to find out what
needs to be fixed. (but i doubt anyone care...)
