Bug#985728: ITP: howdy -- Infrared Facial Authentication Module for Linux

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

  Version         : 3.0.0
  Upstream Author : Lem Severein <hey@boltgolt.nl>

  Description     : Infrared Facial Authentication Module for Linux

Howdy provides Windows Hello style authentication for Linux. Use 
your built-in infrared emitters and camera in combination with 
facial recognition to prove who you are.

Based on visitor and download statistics Howdy is already used on 
tens of thousands of systems. Currently distributed with a PPA or 
deb file directly. Version 3.0.0 will introduce large changes and
 make Howdy a lot more mature. I think it's time to try and 
package it within the main debian archive.

I am the main developer and maintainer of this package, and i
intend to continue to support Howdy. I'm not sure in what team 
this package would fit, but a sponsor would be nice.
