Bug#628062: RFH: freeipmi -- GNU implementation of the IPMI protocol

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I am seeking for help with FreeIPMI.  Project is really nice, upstream is
very knowledgeable, nice, and I even had them as an exemplar CVS gurus
(Just see http://www.onerussian.com/Linux/misc/freeipmi-big-picture.pdf for
the development tree after it got cvsimported into GIT).  FWIW ATM upstream
is using SVN.

There is only 2 simple bugs opened in DBTS

#619234 [n|  |  ] [freeipmi-bmc-watchdog] freeipmi-bmc-watchdog: Configuration file and init script do not match
#619248 [n|  |  ] [freeipmi] freeipmi: needs versioned build-dep on autotools-dev

and just slightly bigger piece of work is needed for preparing migration to
the recent upstream release of 1.x series where some tools were renamed, so
it would need just a bit of work to achieve a smooth transition for
existing users.

popcon is not high relatively, partially because freeipmi was initially
uploaded only in Nov 2009, but numbers seems to be growing exponentially at
this moment ;) :

Packaging maintained in GIT following git-buildpackage + pristine-tar


Ideally I am looking for a co-maintainer (or even adopter) who is using it
for his sysadmin needs.  I could mentor/sponsor if necessary.
