Bug#773861: RFS: signify-openbsd/7-1 [ITP] -- Lightweight cryptographic signing and verifying tool

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

  Dear mentors,

  I am looking for a sponsor for my package "signify-openbsd"

 * Package name    : signify-openbsd
   Version         : 7-1
   Upstream Author : Adrian Perez <aperez@igalia.com>
 * URL             : https://github.com/aperezdc/signify
 * License         : BSD
   Section         : utils

 Similar to GNU Privacy Guard (GPG), signify is the tool which
 OpenBSD uses to cryptographically sign its releases, so that
 you can be sure that you are actually getting a release made by
 OpenBSD, as opposed to a malicious forgery designed to look
 the same.

 Signify's usage is not limited to OpenBSD's releases, however -
 it can be used to sign any software.

 So that it will work on Linux, the version of signify provided
 in this package is not exactly the same as the version provided
 in OpenBSD's CVS tree; however the upstream changes are
 frequently merged.

  It builds those binary packages:

    signify-openbsd - Lightweight cryptographic signing and verifying tool
