RFS: irrtoolset and/or flare


1) Package name : irr-tools
RTP: #189359
Version : 4.8.2
Upstream Author : Internet Routing Registry Toolset Project 
* URL : http://www.ripe.net/ripencc/pub-services/db/irrtoolset/index.html
* License : Unknown for now, RTP claims it is BSD-ish.
Description : IRRToolSet is a suite of policy analysis tools to operate with 
routing policies in RPSL [RFC 2622] format, registered in Internet Routing 
Registry(IRR). The main goal of the project is to make routing information 
more convenient and useful for network engineers, by providing tools for 
automated router configuration, routing policies analysis, and maintenance.
Preliminary package: ftp://ftp.logos-bg.net/debian/

2) Package name : flare
Version: 20040804
Upstream Author:  Berke Durak
* URL :  http://abaababa.ouvaton.org/ara/
* License: GPL
Description :  Flare is an experimental GTK2 interface for ara. In fact it 
does what ara does (already in debian archive), but does not depend on it. It 
has now much improved syntax. You can specify a default search field pattern 
for a group of expressions (which is by default and quite conveniently, 
"Description"). For example it is now possible to type :

    section=utils and (backup* or archive or /cop\(y\|ies\)/iw) and depends:
(xlibs or /gnome/ or *gtk)

instead of

    section=utils & (/\bbackup.*/ | /archive/iw | /cop\(y\|ies\)/iw) & 
(depends=~/xlibs/ | depends=~/gnome/ | depends=~/.*gtk/iw)

Please note that Flare is in a quite experimental stage. However it is really 
useful right now, and as Debian still lacks a good and fast (ara lacking a 
GUI or a proper CLI reloads the database at every invocation and so is dog 
slow) sophisticated search tool so I thought I'd share it.
Preliminary package: ftp://ftp.logos-bg.net/debian/

3) Package Issues: 
* Sorry, for the lame question, but I can not figure out of how to split the 
diff.gz file out of the tarball files. Have to resolve that. Any help will be 
* The first one (irr-tools) is rather complicated for me, an not so familiar 
with the Routing Registry stuff. Will see how to handle it.
