It's currently going through some itterations on the Debian Mentors list.

Shouldn't be long now before it's in testing, I should expect.

I am dropping intended maintainership and moving this to a RFP because:

 * I do not fully understand C and the related problems this may cause.

 * The upstream author is unwilling to accept my patches.

FYI, the tool flock provided by package util-linux may provide all the necessary bits to replace the use of lockrun.

Hope this helps.
