`tmpwatch-1.4' Packaged.

 I've uploaded a package called `tmpwatch', which is an improved and
 bugfixed version of the `tmpwatch-1.2' that Red Hat shipped with
 their last release.  Here's the control file:


 Source: tmpwatch
 Section: experimental
 Priority: standard
 Maintainer: Karl M. Hegbloom <karlheg@inetarena.com>
 Package: tmpwatch
 Architecture: i386
 Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}
 Description: Cleans up files in directories based on their age
  This package provides a program that can be used to clean out temporary-file
  directories.  It recursively searches the directory, refusing to chdir()
  across symlinks, and removes files that haven't been accessed in a
  user-specified amount of time.  You can specify a set of files to protect
  from deletion with a shell pattern.  It will not remove files owned by the
  process EUID that have the `w' bit clear, unless you ask it to, much like `rm
  -f'.  `tmpwatch' will not remove symlinks, sockets, fifos, or special files
  unless given a command line option enabling it to.
  WARNING:  Please do not run `tmpwatch' on `/'.  There are no protections
  against this written into the program, as that would prevent it from
  functioning the way you'd expect it to in a `chroot(8)' environment.


 This is in answer to the comments in "/etc/cron.daily/standard".  I
 downloaded version 1.2 from Red Hat, discovered some bugs, fixed
 them, and added some things.  I believe RHS may be going to use my
 version in their next release; I've forwarded it to Erik Troan.[1]

 Should this be moved into the main release?  Will someone please look
 it over and verify my work?   It is still in `incoming' on master, and
 also may be obtained at:

[1]  I hope they send me a check.  I need to buy the `Stevens' Unix
     programming books, and I'm too broke to afford them right now.
