Hi Matthew, * Matthew Johnson <firstname.lastname@example.org> [2007-03-14 16:50]: > Dear mentors, I am looking for a sponsor for my package otpw. > > Package name : otpw > Version : 1.3 > Upstream Author : Markus Kuhn > * URL : http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/download/otpw-1.3.tar.gz > * License : GPL2 > Description : A One-time password system for PAM-compatible login programs. > > The OTPW package consists of the one-time-password generator otpw-gen > plus two verification routines otpw_prepare() and otpw_verify() that can > easily be added to programs such as login or ftpd on POSIX systems.

[...] From what you describe here I am not sure how this program differ from libpam-opie, opie-client and opie-server which are already in Debian. What are the differences?
