RFS: iroffer - IRC file distribution bot
The iroffer package has been orphaned and I would like to take over it,
so I'm looking for a sponsor.
Iroffer is an IRC fileserver (GPL licence). Users can retrieve files
that the bot holds using the DCC protocol.
iroffer is a fileserver for IRC (commonly referred to as a DCC bot).
It uses the DCC feature of IRC to send files to other users. iroffer
will connect to an IRC server and let people request files from it.
Unlike similar programs, iroffer is not a script; it is a standalone
executable written entirely in C, from scratch, with high transfer
speed and effeciency in mind. iroffer has been known to reach
2MByte/sec or higher bandwidth usage when multiple transfers are
occuring at the same time.
Here is the changelog for what I made:
* New maintainer
* New upstream release (Closes: #217890)
* Manpage update
* Upgrade to standards 3.6.1
- Converted changelog and control to UTF-8
* Light rules modifications (handle DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)
The updated package can be found at
The package is both linda and lintian clean.
Thanks for your help,
