Bug#322357: fail2ban debian package

Dear Baruch,

Thank you for your attention to fail2ban project. It is my solely fault
for not announcing fail2ban to wnpp with  ITP email. I thought that it
gets to Debian in no time, and didn't bother filing ITP :-/ Bad me :-/

I've packaged fail2ban and I am keeping in touch with upstream author.
As you can see from a message below - fail2ban was sponsored,
duploaded to Debian archive already and hopefully becomes
available there soon. Thus there is no need of hijacking it. I would
appreciate any comments if you see any problems with packaging. And
thank you for filing ITP bug ;-)
