Bug#616618: ITP: libwww-finger-perl -- get useful data from e-mail addresses

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jonas Smedegaard <dr@jones.dk>

* Package name    : libwww-finger-perl
  Version         : 0.101
  Upstream Author : Toby Inkster <tobyink@cpan.org>
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/dist/WWW-Finger/

  Description     : get useful data from e-mail addresses

 This module is *not* an implementation of the finger protocol (RFC
 1288). Use Net::Finger for that. Instead it is a set of implementations
 of *other* methods for getting information from an e-mail address, or
 e-mail-like identifier. This package includes four such
 implementations, and it's pretty easy to create your own additional
  * WebFinger
  * Fingerpoint
  * cpan.org scraper (for user@cpan.org)
  * Unnamed finger protocol described on bitworking.org
 Only the first two implementations are enabled by default. See
 "IMPLEMENTATIONS" on how to enable others, and for more details.
