RFP:zuluCrypt - a frontend to cryptsetup and tcplay allowing GUI based management of LUKS,PLAIN and TRUECRYPT encrypted volumes

home page: http://code.google.com/p/zulucrypt/

Small description:
zuluCrypt is a front end to cryptsetup,a linux native solution for hard drive encryption. As a GUI frontend,zuluCrypt makes it easy to use cryptsetup to manage PLAIN,LUKS as well as TRUECRYPT encrypted volumes(atleast version 1.6.0 of cryptsetup and 1.0.0 of tcplay are required for full truecrypt volume support).

Permission to introduce myself, i am the founder and current maintainer of the project mentioned above.I found the project to fill a gap i was experiencing in my own personal management of encrypted volumes and though to go public with it to share it with the whole linux community.The original idea was to give cryptsetup a GUI frontend that will match in functionality to truecrypt GUI to allow an easy management of cryptsetup volumes.

cryptsetup[1] in version 1.6.0 got the ability to open truecrypt volumes and tcplay[2] (version 1.0 to be released shortly) was founded and a front end to these two great projects gives zuluCrypt a unified,"one stop GUI solution" to management of LUKS,PLAIN and TRUECRYPT volumes.

I am,in this email,requesting for this package to be included in debian to allow its derivations to easily integrate it in their package systems.
