RFS: fsprotect (try #2)

Dear mentors,

A month ago I sent the following RFS without anyone offering to sponsor it. 
I'm resending it as a reminder.

I am looking for guidance and a sponsor for my package "fsprotect".

* Package name    : fsprotect
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : Stefanos Harhalakis <v13@v13.gr> (me)
* URL             : http://www.v13.gr/proj/fsprotect/
* License         : GPL
  Section         : admin

It builds these binary packages:
fsprotect  - Helper scripts to make filesystems immutable

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/f/fsprotect
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main 
contrib non-free
- dget 

This is a set of scripts that combine aufs and tmpfs and make the root and 
other filesystems immutable. Existing filesystems are re-mounted as read-only 
and all changes are written to tmpfs and are lost at the next reboot.

It is ideal for:
* Public computers. It keeps all files intact, no matter what the user does.
* Testing. i.e. KDE3 -> KDE4 upgrade
* Security (also requires adequate paranoia)

Fsprotect can be seen as an opensource alternative to deepfreeze for linux.

Kind regards
 Stefanos Harhalakis
