Owner: Ritesh Raj Sarraf <rrs@debian.org>

  Description     : tool for reliable scsi hotplugging in linux

Linux allows you to add and remove SCSI devices without rebooting by
using the echo "scsi add-single-device H C I L" > /proc/scsi/scsi
command (H = host, C = channel, I = SCSI ID, L = SCSI LUN). The
remove-single-device command works similarily.
This tool provides an easy interface to interact with the SCSI subsystem
in the linux kernel to perform SCSI Hotplugging

To Debian-Devel:
This package is just one single shell script. But an important one. The
rescan-scsi-bus.sh script helps a lot in the SAN space where there could
be targets with sporadic connecitons. Is it okay to package a single
shell script as a package?
