Owner: Vincent Danjean <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Description : 1-Wire File System
1-wire is a communication protocol, wiring scheme and system of devices and
"iButtons". The design and control of the protocol is from Dallas Semi (part
of Maxim Semiconductor). The 1-wire protocol uses in fact 2 wires: one
for ground and the active wire for data *and* power!
OWFS is an easy way to use the powerful 1-wire system of Dallas/Maxim. It is
a simple and flexible program to monitor and control the physical
environment. You can write scripts to read temperature, flash lights, write
to an LCD, log and graph, ...
Then, there will be a short paragraph for each package (langage bindings, main
library, documentation, ...)
If some people with knowledge in Python and php packaging are interrested to
help, they are welcome. Let me know. Java, C# and ruby bindings are not yet
ready but I will ask for help when they will be.
If some people want to co-maintain this package, there are also welcome.
