Bug#330302: ITP: sysconftool -- development tool to install and update configuration files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Willi Mann <willi@wm1.at>

* Package name    : sysconftool
  Version         : 0.15
  Upstream Author : Sam Varshavchik <mrsam@courier-mta.com>
* URL             : http://www.courier-mta.org/sysconftool/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : development tool to install and update configuration files

sysconftool is a development utility that helps to install application
configuration files. sysconftool allows an existing application to be
upgraded without losing the older version's configuration settings, but
that's the advantage over plain dpkg upgrading, will add new
configuration settings (and remove unneeded). 

The reasons why I want to package it:
- I want to work with Stefan Hornburg (Racke) on a smoother upgrading
  strategy for courier* packages. (The idea was born in bug 233873)
- It's needed if someone wants to build courier from CVS
