cipux: cipux-notifier and cipux-client


Package: cipux-notifier
Description: CipUX Notifier for the CipUX Client
 This is the CipUX Notifier to be used by the CipUX Clients. It monitors
 the LDAP configuration value CipUX_Notify_Clients and notifies all 
 connected Clients when a change occurs.

Package: cipux-client
Description: CipUX Client for the CipUX Notifier
 It creates the netfilter chain "noout" at first and then connects to the
 Notifier and changes the iptables rules if necessary to allow or disallow 
 the access to the internet (according to the LDAP-Values).

According to an older discussion (with Christan iirc), which resulted in 
http://developer.skolelinux.no/~holger/CipUX/needed_packages.txt we should 
skip those packages, but they are still in debian/control.

Does that mean, that debian-edu (including .fr and .de) doesn't need them, so 
they don't need to be in the debian-edu depends/recommends but should be 
build for debian(-edu)? 

Or should they be completly removed from debian/control?

In any case, please provide a better long description, I cannot really 
understand what these packages do and what they are useful for. I have doubts 
any ftpmaster (neither in debian nor in debian-edu) will accept the package 
like this. 

It's enough if you explain it here on the list, if I understand this, I can 
commit the changes myself :)
