Bug#311597: Happy to help
I'm the author of Anyterm. I'm a Debian user and would be very happy to
help with packaging in whatever way I could - though I currently have only
the vaguest idea of what happens inside a .deb file.
I was going to contact you before uploading. I guess I'm lucky you found me
Thanks for your offer! I don't have any questions (yet) but if you have any
suggestions, feel free to tell me ;-)
I'm going to package the "development" version 1.1.1. There are lot of
reasons for doing that, but I think the most important one is the 64-bit
fixes. Any objections?
I think that the major issue with installing this is security. At
present, people have to read the instructions and so should have some idea
of what the security implications are before installing. If they can just
"apt-get install" it, they miss that. I am really hoping that someone who
has some experience with security auditing, preferably in connection with
Apache, will take an interest.
Actually, I was thinking to _not_ auto-enable the site in Apache. Instead
I'm going to provide the example Apache configuration (in
/usr/share/doc/anyterm/) with BIG warnings about the security implications.
I think it should be enough.
