Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Enrico Zini <enrico@debian.org>

  Version         : 0.6
  Upstream Author : Enrico Zini <enrico@enricozini.org>

  Description     : pm-utils replacement for embedded hardware

 * It tries its best to run hooks in exactly the same way as pm-utils.
 * It's faster
 * It can load hooks from a .so file, which is much faster, avoids
   context switches and allows to keep state conveniently in memory.
 * .so files will be loaded also if they are not executable. Install a
   non-executable .so file to have it loaded by pm-utils light but ignored by
 * It allows to cancel a resume, for example in order to go back to sleep in
   case of a resume for usb disconnect.
 * No support for quirks
 * It does not ship the functions and pm-functions shell libraries, so plugins
   cannot make use of them

This is currently available in the pkg-fso repository. It gained a few
users, and I've been asked to upload it to sid.
