Bug#230767: ITP: devlabel -- storage device abstraction layer

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : devlabel
  Version         : 0.45.04
  Upstream Author : Gary Lerhaupt <Gary_Lerhaupt@dell.com>
* URL             : http://linux.dell.com/devlabel/devlabel.html
* License         : GPL
  Description     : storage device abstraction layer

Devlabel is a program which dynamically creates symbolic links to
disk/partition names. It uses the disk's and/or partition's unique
identifiers to keep the symlink pointed to the correct location even if
the underlying partition's name has changed. So, regardless of whether
/dev/sdb6 becomes /dev/sdc6, devlabel figures this all out and points
the symlink to the correct data.
