Package: wnpp Severity: normal X-Debbugs-CC: firstname.lastname@example.org I intend to orphan the arpalert package. I no longer use arpalert and active upstream development seems stoped. The package description is: This package provides the arpalert daemon. It listens on a network interface (without using 'promiscuous' mode) and catches all conversations of MAC address to IP request. It then compares the mac addresses it detected with a pre-configured list of authorized MAC addresses. If the MAC is not in list, arpalert launches a pre-defined user script with the MAC address and IP address as parameters. This software can run in daemon mode; it's very fast (low CPU and memory consumption). It responds at signal SIGHUP (configuration reload) and at signals SIGTERM, SIGINT, SIGQUIT and SIGABRT (arpalert stops itself). If you need to use a list of authorized MAC addresses, this package should suit your needs, otherwise arpwatch may be also fine.
