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.
