Re: [Summary] UPS anyone?

Thanks for the info.
The UNIX checkups software you mention is the same that might get
packaged for Debian, depending on the license I presume.  Even if
it didn't get packaged, it would be nice to have the .dsc and
.diff.gz files such that one could download checkups, apply the
diff and build a proper Debian package.
