Bug#585071: ITP: libnih -- small utilitiy library for C application development

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>

* Package name    : libnih
  Version         : 1.0.2
  Upstream Author : Scott James Remnant <scott@netsplit.com>
* URL             : https://launchpad.net/libnih
* License         : GNU GPL v2
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : small utilitiy library for C application development

libnih is roughly equivalent to other C libraries such as glib, except
that its focus is on a small size and intended for applications that sit
very low in the software stack, especially outside of /usr.

It expressly does not reimplement functions that already exist in
libraries ordinarily shipped in /lib such libc6, and does not do foolish
things like invent arbitrary typedefs for perfectly good C types.

libnih is packaged as dependency of upstart >= 0.6.5.
