Bug#517847: RFP: coova-chilli -- (Wireless) LAN Access Point Controller (captive portal).

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : coova-chilli
  Version         : 1.0.12
  Upstream Author : David Bird <wlan@mac.com>
* URL             : http://coova.org/wiki/index.php/CoovaChilli
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : (Wireless) LAN Access Point Controller (captive portal).

>From the package description:
 Coova-Chilli is an open source captive portal or wireless LAN access 
 point controller, forked from chillispot (http://www.chillispot.org).
 It supports web based login which is today's standard for
 public HotSpots and it supports Wireless Protected Access (WPA) which
 is the standard of the future. Authentication, Authorization and
 Accounting (AAA) is handled by your favorite radius server. Read more
 on http://www.coova.org/

This is a fork of the chillispot package found in Etch/Sid, which seems 
to be the only captive portal software in Debian atm. But chillispot 
development seems to be dead for about 2 years. Due Coova-Chilli is in 
active development and has some more features than chillispot, I would 
like to see it to become part of Debian.
