Bug#612902: O: arpalert -- Monitor ARP changes in ethernet networks

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.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
 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.
