Bug#748562: ITP: execpermfix -- Fixes executable permissions

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Leandro Lisboa Penz <lpenz@lpenz.org>

* Package name    : execpermfix
  Version         : 1.0.5
  Upstream Author : Leandro Lisboa Penz <lpenz@lpenz.org>
* URL             : http://github.com/lpenz/execpermfix
* License         : GPL-2
* Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Fixes executable permissions

execpermfix sets or resets the executable permission bit of a file based on its
contents: ELF header and shebang. The permission given is synchronized with the
read permission.

That's useful when unpacking files from compression formats or network
transmission protocols that do not support execution permission
meta-information. It can also be used to synchronize the execution permission
with the read permission.

I will maintain it in collab-maint. I already have a sponsor.
