Bug#88567: ITP: scanssh - scan addresses and networks for sshd and report versions



Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

From the readme:
Scanssh scans the given addresses and networks for running SSH
servers.  It will query their version number and displays the results
in a list.

This program was originally written under OpenBSD as a personal
measurement tool.  However, besides gathering statistics, it's also
useful for other purposes such as ensuring that all machines on your
network run the latest SSH versions, etc...

License: BSD
URL: <http://www.monkey.org/~provos/scanssh/>

[Cc'ed to debian-devel because of earlier discussion and because of
questions I pose below.]

NOTES:

- A test version of the package is available at
  <http://people.debian.org/~rweber/prelim/>.  Please note that it is a TEST
  package and the version will not be incremented for the final release.
  (The only non-potato box I have is a chroot, so this is barely tested
  yet.)

- Upstream agreed with me that the semantics of the -E option (whether to
  exit if the exclude file is not specified/found) should change, and
  supplied me a patch from the CVS.  I want to avoid changing this option
  between releases, but this makes my package inconsistent with the
  published version.  It *is* documented as the new usage, but does anyone
  think that this is a particularly bad idea?

- License is BSD, except that it diffs with the license in
  /usr/share/common-licenses/BSD:

----------------------------  C U T   H E R E  ----------------------------

    I must assume this is ok, but since it does differ, do I need to go to
debian-legal to be sure?  I don't need to include the full license, do I?
