Bug#217495: ITP: nocatsplash -- captive portal system

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : nocatsplash
  Version         : 0.0.0.${date}snapshot
  Upstream Author : Schuyler Erle <schuyler@nocat.net>
* URL             : http://nocat.net/download/NoCatSplash/
* License         : GPL v2
  Description     : captive portal system

 NoCatSplash is an open public network gateway daemon.  It performs as a
 captive portal, also called an "open" or "active" portal.  When run on a
 gateway or router on a network, NoCatSplash causes all web requests to be
 redirected to a "splash page," where users must log in or (for example)
 agree to an usage policy.
 The gateway daemon uses ipchains or iptables to set firewall rules to
 control the flow of traffic, based on IP and MAC addresses.
 NoCatSplash is the successor of NoCatAuth, and is designed to be smaller
 and work better on embedded-style devices.

The upstream author of this software has been contacted; I am waiting
for a reply before beginning serious packaging work.
