Bug#712765: ITP: ruby-safe-yaml -- Safe implementation of YAML.load

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stig Sandbeck Mathisen <ssm@debian.org>

* Package name    : ruby-safe-yaml
  Version         : 0.9.2
  Upstream Author : Dan Tao <daniel.tao@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/dtao/safe_yaml
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: Ruby
  Description     : Safe implementation of YAML.load

The SafeYAML gem provides an alternative implementation of YAML.load suitable
for accepting user input in Ruby applications. Unlike Ruby's built-in
implementation of YAML.load, SafeYAML's version will not expose apps to
arbitrary code execution exploits.

(The safe_yaml gem was vendored into puppet to fix a recent vulnerability.  The
packaging of this gem should help this situation.)
