Bug#454590: O: lcap -- Removes 'capabilities' in the kernel, making the system more secure

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of lcap, Christian Hudon <chrish@debian.org>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package now.

Maintaining a package requires time and skills. Please only adopt this
package if you are *sure* you will have enough time and attention to
work on it.

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: Removes 'capabilities' in the kernel, making the system more secure
 Capabilities are a form of kernel-based access control. This program
 provides a user-friendlier way than setting proc/sys/kernel/cap-bound by hand
 to remove capabilities from your Linux kernel.
 For example, you can remove the capability to load kernel modules by executing
 'lcap CAP_SYS_MODULE' as root. Then no one, not even root, can load modules
 into your kernel. This can be useful for tightening the security of your
 Linux machines.
