Bug#401680: O: siege -- Http regression testing and benchmarking utility

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the siege package. Package is generally working
although it's been reported to throw some segfaults recently
(unconfirmed by upstream author). I've been in touch with Jeff Fulmer
(upstream), he accepts patches and suggestions and sometimes makes a new
release, but he is not able to resolve every debian issue. I'm not a C
programmer, so I'll better leave it for some experienced DD.

The package description is:
 Siege is an regression test and benchmark utility. It can stress test a single
 URL with a user defined number of simulated users, or it can read many URLs
 into memory and stress them simultaneously. The program reports the total
 number of hits recorded, bytes transferred, response time, concurrency, and
 return status. Siege supports HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 protocols, the GET and POST
 directives, cookies, transaction logging, and basic authentication. Its
 features are configurable on a per user basis.
 Note: this package contains siege with https support turned on, thus it
 obsoletes siege-ssl package now.
