Re: Bug#595820: ITP: woof -- A small, simple, stupid webserver to share files

Long Description:  
  Woof (Web Offer One File) is a tool to copy files between hosts. It can 
serve a specified file on HTTP,just for a given number of times, and then 
shutdown. It can be easily used to share files across the computers on a 
net, and given that the other ends should have just a browser, it can share 
stuff between different operating system, or different devices (e.g.: a 
smartphone). It can also show a simple html form in order to upload a file.

About the question raised by zack (i.e: which singolar features has woof in 
respect to other packages), 
* if I understood correctly webfs is a one-way only, and doesn't support 
the "shutdown after a single transfer".
* webworf instead, as said by Salvo in his mail, doesn't limit the number 
of connection (still no "shutdown after <n> transfers", doesn't give an 
archive of a directory, and use PUT for uploads (i.e. less support for 
browser interaction)
