Bug#696888: RFA: pconsole -- parallel console shell for administering clusters

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist


since I switched from FVWM to Awesome as window manager I prefer to use
mssh (orphaned, I know) over pconsole for mass interactive SSH
sessions. So I actually don't use pconsole that much anymore.

So I think it would be better if someone, who is actually using it
regularily, would maintain the package for Debian.

Nevertheless I'll continue to care about it until someone else stands
up. I also still have some ideas how to improve the package's
functionality, actually some improvements are already in the Git repo.

I'm also fine with co-maintaining or sponsoring it, in case someone
would maintain it, but still needs some help. In that case I'd move the
Git repo to alioth and put it under collab-maint.

Here's some information about the package:

Description-en: parallel console shell for administering clusters
 pconsole allows you to connect to each node of your cluster simultaneously,
 and you can type your administrative commands in a specialized window that
 'multiplies' the input to each of the connections you have opened.
 pconsole is best run from within X Window, although it is possible to
 employ it without X (in console mode) as well.
 You need to install pconsole on only 1 machine in the cluster, this would
 usually be your central administrative node.
