Description : manage Procfile-based applications
Foreman is a manager for Procfile-based applications. Its aim is to abstract
away the details of the Procfile format, and allow you to either run your
application directly or export it to some other process management format.
There's a more popular/more complicated piece of software called
Foreman, for which there's an RFP already, as well as a component
of that, foremancli, already in Debian. Upstream provides a package too,
although you could argue it isn't our problem if there's a naming conflict.
Nevertheless, I think it'd be best to avoid a package naming conflict
between the two apparently completely unrelated applications.
Oh, and BTW, you should probably explain what a Procfile is on the long
description of your package as it's not immediately obvious.
