Bug#456640: RFA: munin -- network-wide graphing framework (grapher/gatherer)

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I don't have time to maintain the Munin packages any more (and haven't
for quite a while either, truth to be told).  So there's a bunch of bugs
reports that hasn't yet been looked at, and although the packages
themselves are in quite good condition there's lots of reports of
upstream bugs that needs to be triaged and fixed/forwarded.

The packages are currently maintained in the upstream SVN repository,
and the new maintainer(s) will be given write access there.  The 1.2
stable branch is de-facto maintained by the Debian maintainer at the
moment, so you'll be free (or even encouraged) to make new upstream
releases instead of carrying patches in the Debian diff.

The new major upstream release is still under developement, but it's
still some months away I believe.

The package description is:
 Munin is a highly flexible and powerful solution used to create graphs of
 virtually everything imaginable throughout your network, while still
 maintaining a rattling ease of installation and configuration.
 This package contains the grapher/gatherer. You will only need one instance of
 it in your network. It will periodically poll all the nodes in your network
 it's aware of for data, which it in turn will use to create graphs and HTML
 pages, suitable for viewing with your graphical web browser of choice.
 It is also able to alert you if any value is outside of a preset boundary,
 useful if you want to be alerted if a filesystem is about to grow full, for
 instance.  You can do this by making Munin run an arbitrary command when you
 need to be alert it, or make use of the intrinsic Nagios support.
 Munin is written in Perl, and relies heavily on Tobi Oetiker's excellent
 RRDtool. To see a real example of Munin in action, you can follow a link
 from <http://munin.projects.linpro.no/> to a live installation.
