Bug#236496: ITP: pkgsync -- automated package list synchronization

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : pkgsync
  Version         : 1.0-4
  Upstream Author : Debian native
* URL             : None
* License         : GPL
  Description     : automated package list synchronization

pkgsync is a tool for keeping multiple machines reasonably similar and
clean. Packages can either be in a `must be installed', `may be
installed' or `must not be installed' list (which is presumed to be
distributed separately using a tool such as rdist or cfengine).  pkgsync
will take care of meeting the demands put down in the lists, and then
removing everything that is not in the `must' or `may' list and is not
necessary for their operations (as determined by aptitude).

A preliminary package is available from
http://itk.samfundet.no/apt/pkgsync_1.0-4_all.deb; we have this in
production, but the package needs more documentation, QA and testing
before it's ready to go into Debian.
