Intent to package: ruplist
A friend of mine once wrote a program called `ruplist', which keeps track of
the uptimes of computers on a LAN (running rwhod). It shows you the
all-time-high record a things like that.
After some talk, I decided to package it.
new debian package, version 2.0.

Description: shows uptimes of computers connected to a LAN
Ruplist is a gadget that shows you (if connected to a Local Area Network)
(LAN) all sites on that LAN with their uptimes and their rankings. These
rankings depend on the uptime of a site.
It is not released under GPL - these few lines cover the copyright issues:

So I think it could go in main. I'm not sure however. Any opinions? One more
thing - it makes use of a mode 777 directory /var/spool/ruplist; this is to
allow any user to 'update' the all-time-high statistics. I don't see any
clear exploits - symlinking files to /etc/passwd and stuff is detected
(symlinks get unlink()'ed before used). If someone likes to audit it before
I upload it (if noone objects), I'd like to hear the results of course.
I just put a preliminary version of the package online:
