RFS: truncate

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "truncate".

* Package name    : truncate
  Version         : 2007.03.13-1
  Upstream Author : Peter Pentchev <roam@ringlet.net> (myself)
* URL             : http://devel.ringlet.net/sysutils/truncate/
* License         : Two-clause BSD
  Section         : utils

It builds these binary packages:
truncate   - FreeBSD utility to truncate or extend the size of files

 The truncate utility adjusts the length of each regular file given on the
 command-line.  This package is simply a redistribution of the utility as
 found in the FreeBSD base system.
  Homepage: http://devel.ringlet.net/sysutils/truncate/

The package is lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 415016

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/t/truncate/truncate_2007.03.13-1.dsc

Just for the record, I know about dd(1)'s "seek" option :)  But still,
truncate(1) is a useful utility in its own right, if only for the ease
of invoking it and the intuitive command-line interface :)

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

If the meanings of 'true' and 'false' were switched, then this sentence wouldn't be false.
