Bug#800897: ITP: zxcvbn.js -- JavaScript password strength estimator

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Luke Faraone <lfaraone@debian.org>

* Package name    : zxcvbn.js
  Version         : 3.5.0
  Upstream Author : Dan Wheeler <dan@dropbox.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/dropbox/zxcvbn
* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: JavaScript
  Description     : JavaScript password strength estimator

zxcvbn is a password strength estimator inspired by password crackers.
Through pattern matching and conservative entropy calculations, it
recognizes and weighs 10k common passwords, common names and surnames
according to US census data, popular English words, and other common
patterns like dates, repeats (aaa), sequences (abcd), keyboard patterns
(qwertyuiop), and l33t speak.

Motiviation for the design can be found detailed at:

zxcvbn detects and supports CommonJS (node, browserify) and AMD
(RequireJS). In the absence of those, it adds a single function
zxcvbn() to the global namespace.

NB: This is my first time packaging a JavaScript/AMD/Node package,
so I will probably be reaching out to the Debian JS maintainers for
help :)
