Experimental package procps 1.09 uploaded to master


Hello all.

This is a test release of the next major procps release. As most changes
have been made by myself, this will be handled as a debian-specific package
for now.
I need some people to test this (mostly for stupid errors I made and on
different architectures. I think it may be very likely that things
may be different on an Alpha) on their machines. The package uses
teh version number 1.09, though I think it very likely that the
next major release will be 2.0.

This package of procps introduces the following new functionality:

 - completely configurable field selection for both ps and top
 - color markup for ps and top (see ps_color.7)
 - POSIX(SVR4) command line arguments supported for ps, selected via
   the environment variable PS_PERSONALITY
 - support for all process information offered by procps 
 - configurable field width
 - rewritten manpages for ps and top.
This package doesn't use a shared library for libproc for now.
If you want to test it, be aware that there are probably still some 
problems with this package. 
Please do not bother Chuck Blake <cblake@bbn.com> with bug reports about
this package, use the debian bug report scheme.

   * This is an experimental release of the procps suite. A lot of features have
     been added since the 1.01(a) release:
      - support for both BSD and POSIX (SVR4) style command line options.
      - completely configurable display of information.
      - colour markup of processes exceeding limits or belonging to a user.
     Please take a look at /usr/doc/procps/NEWS and the manpages for a concise
     list. This is how the next upstream release of procps may look
     (i.e. it will  look like this if there is not too much resistance).
