Bug#796709: ITP: diceware -- Passphrases to remember...

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: drebs <drebs@riseup.net>

* Package name    : diceware
  Version         : 0.5
  Upstream Author : Uli Fouquet <uli@gnufix.de>
* URL             : https://github.com/ulif/diceware

  Description     : Passphrases to remember...

diceware is a passphrase generator following the proposals of Arnold G.
Reinhold on http://diceware.com . It generates passphrases by concatenating
words randomly picked from wordlists.

The program is very helpful to create strong passwords that are easy to
remember, accounting for distinct sources of randomness. I use it quite often
and I know other people that also use it and would benefit from having it in
available as a debian package.

I plan to package it as my first packaging experience, and I would need a
sponsor for this.
