RFS: downtimed (squeeze-backports)

Dear all,

I am offering a backporting of the most recent 'downtimed',
should the developers still find the package useful in the
stable release.

  Package name    : downtimed
  Version         : 0.5-1
  Upstream Author : EPIPE Communications <opensource@epipe.com>
  URL             : http://dist.epipe.com/downtimed/
  License         : FreeBSD
  Section         : admin

It builds a single binary package:
downtimed  - monitor of downtime, shutdown, and crashes

The package appears to be pedantically lintian clean.

The motivation was and still is:

  Having a handful systems for development, all being
  brought up and then down irregularly, makes the usefulness
  of a monitor of shutdown times become clear. Almost more
  important is such a monitor on mission critical systems,
  in order to accurately record any service failure time.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/d/downtimed
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/d/downtimed/downtimed_0.5-1.dsc

Time can be a plentiful commodity,
depending on expectations!
