Bug#509685: ITP: hardlink -- Hardlink multiple copies of the same file

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org>

* Package name    : hardlink
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : Julian Andres Klode <jak@jak-linux.org>
* URL             : http://git.debian.org/?p=users/jak/hardlink.git;a=summary
* License         : MIT
* Programming Lang: Python (>= 2.5)
  Description     : Hardlink multiple copies of the same file

 Hardlink is a tool which detects multiple copies of the same file and replaces
 them with hardlinks.
 The idea has been taken from http://code.google.com/p/hardlinkpy/, but the
 code has been written from scratch and licensed under the MIT license.

-- Further information:
I chose to rewrite hardlinkpy from scratch because I did not like the style
of it and because upstream seems to have lost interest in it.

This can be seen as my response to the question of "chf" on #debian-devel.de,
about packaging hardlinkpy (a few days ago).

-- System Information:
Debian Release: 5.0
  APT prefers testing
  APT policy: (990, 'testing'), (500, 'unstable'), (200, 'experimental')
Architecture: amd64 (x86_64)
