Bug#833897: ITP: abduco -- Terminal session management in a clean and simple way

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Antoine Beaupré" <anarcat@debian.org>

* Package name    : abduco
  Version         : 0.6
  Upstream Author : Marc Andre Tanner <mat@brain-dump.org>
* URL             : http://www.brain-dump.org/projects/abduco/
* License         : ISC
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Terminal session management in a clean and simple way
 abduco provides session management i.e. it allows programs to be run
 independently from their controlling terminal. That is programs can
 be detached - run in the background - and then later
 reattached. Together with dvtm it provides a simpler and cleaner
 alternative to tmux or screen.
 abduco is in many ways very similar to dtach but is a completely
 independent implementation which is actively maintained, contains no
 legacy code, provides a few additional features, has a cleaner, more
 robust implementation and is distributed under the ISC license.

Abduco was removed from Debian in may because it was out of date. This
is an attempt at updating the package to a more recent versions that
is hopefully more stable.

I intend to replace my screen setup with dvtm + abduco shortly.
