* Package name    : libgfshare
  Version         : 1.0.2+bzr20070822
  Upstream Author : Daniel Silverstone <dsilvers@digital-scurf.org>

  Description     : library and utilities for multi-way secret sharing

 This library implements Shamir's method for secret sharing, which can be
 used to split a secret (like a GPG secret key) into multiple parts, so that
 at least some number of those parts are needed to recover the original file,
 but any smaller combination of parts is useless to an attacker.
 For instance, you might split a GPG key using a 3-of-5 share and put one
 share on each of three computers, and two shares on a USB memory stick; then
 you can use the GPG key on any of those three computers using the memory
 stick, but if the memory stick is lost, you can recover the key by
 bringing the three computers together.

As well as a set of library packages, I intend to package the gfsplit and
gfcombine command-line utilities as a binary package gfshare-utils.
I'm in contact with the upstream author, and have asked him to release
current bzr as 1.0.3, but until then I'm going to package what's in bzr.

If anyone's interested: I have vague plans to write a FUSE filesystem that
works like a cross between gfcombine and unionfs, and the upstream author has
told me that Søren Hansen <http://warma.dk/blog/> has similar plans.

Closes: 451355
 libgfshare (1.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Initial release in Debian. (Closes: #451355)
   * debian/patches/0042-allow-2of2.patch, upstream bzr r42:
     Allow degenerate case (2-of-2 share) for least astonishment
   * debian/patches/0043-devurandom.patch, part of upstream bzr r43:
     In gfsplit, use /dev/urandom rather than rand() for randomness, for
     better cryptographic safety
   * debian/patches/0044-fallback.patch, upstream bzr r44: Fall back from
     /dev/urandom to rand(), with a warning, if necessary
   * Packaged from scratch, but should be basically compatible with the
     version in Ubuntu. Changes relative to Ubuntu, for information:
     - the above patches from upstream bzr
     - does not have Soren Hansen's patch to allow gfcombine to output to
       stdout (not yet upstream)
     - better package descriptions (IMO)
     - machine-readable debian/copyright file with explicit licensing for
       packaging (the same as the source)
     - libgfshare-dev does not depend on libc6-dev, to be installable on
       alpha, ia64 etc.
     - libgfshare(5) is in libgfshare-dev rather than libgfshare1 (so the
       former Replaces: Ubuntu versions of the latter)
     - libgfshare-dev is in Section: libdevel
     - libgfshare-dbg added
     - debian/watch added
