Bug#200654: ITP: debpool -- pool-based DEB package archiver



Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-07-09
Severity: wishlist

* Package name: debpool
* Version: 0.1.0
  Upstream Author: Joel Baker <fenton@debian.org>
* URL: N/A
  License: BSD
  Description: pool-based DEB package archiver

DebPool is a pool-based DEB package archiver designed with a goal of
removing any dependancy on code not shipped as part of the core Debian
system.

It is capable of all of the following:
  * Tracking multiple distributions (however, it does *not* include
    unstable -> testing promotion scripts).
  * Generating Release files (requires libdigest-{md5,sha1}-perl)
  * Verifying package signatures (requires gnupg).
  * Signing release files (requires Release files and gnupg).
  * Running in single-pass or daemon modes.

DebPool is intended to be a lightweight replacement for the full Debian
archival scripts, in the tradition of debarchive and mini-dinstall, but
using a pool layout and avoiding external dependancies.
